I guess my point is that so many folks on TPT ask questions about algae invasions, plant growth, etc., and explain that they are injecting "X" number of bubbles per second which actually tells the...

My 40B does have a centerbrace. Apparently they make the 40B in two models- with and without tempered glass (to allow for drilling). Not really sure which one I have (no drilling planned).

I was using a nearly new Eheim Ecco 2236 when I bought another member's two year old XP2. Sold the Eheim and kept the XP2- that was a couple of years ago, and I'm still very happy with my decision.
