long tanks require the rim to support against mid tank bowing.
Consider either another manufacturer as well. I see many frag style tanks that have a lower profile which may well suit our applications. The market has a flood of varying tank styles these days so the opportunity to change up to something new and interesting is a welcome departure from the traditional rectangle.
