If you remove the hood, rim is not there. Pretty cool. Finished much better than a standard 10 gallon on top, will save you a few hours, depending on how much of a perfectionist you are. I think you can only buy the kit, not the tank alone, I may be wrong on that. Far from ADA or even Mr. Aqua but silicone is better than a standard 10 gallon on the sides, top has finished edges, etc. Black silicone though.

DerekFF Ive seen a 40b derimmed and it was fine. Makes me a little nervous though at that size and up

lochaber I might be wrong, but unless the rim has a center brace, then it doesn't really do anything structurally for the tank. I've heard of people de-rimming 40B (no idea how those turned out though...)

DerekFF Yes 10 and 20g tanks can safely be derimmed with no worry about loss of integrity

rimless

Is a 10 gallon tank small enough to take of the top bracing and convert it to rimless?
