Default Derimming a 20 long for a riparium?

Would this be safe? I have a 20 long and it bows, almost to a frightening degree, when I refill it after a water change. It obviously wouldn't be anywhere near that full for a riparium, probably at half or a little over. I just don't want to buy a tank and have it explode on me not a good thing!
Thanks

People have derimmed 20L's a lot. You'll be fine, especially since you're only filling half way as well.
