DIY rimless all-glass tank
OK, so a while ago I had a 10g that sprang a leak near the top. I replaced the tank and the old leaky one has been sitting around my apartment tempting me...
This morning I decided to remove the top and bottom black plastic rim and I spraypainted the back pane black. I plan on redoing the silicone seal around the inside of the whole tank.
Will this tank have enough integrity to hold together? Is the plastic rim necessary on store bought tanks? ...10g is a lot of water to leak in the second story of an apartment!
