Default Riparium planters with a eurobrace

I'm in the very early stages of thinking about a new aquarium project to showcase a really nice driftwood stump that I've been carting around for the past few years.

I'm thinking of a large, shallow tank (approximately 60" X 30" X 16") that will be almost entirely full of water but will have some emergent driftwood and emersed plant growth above the tank. I've thought about building a rimless glass aquarium, but I think I'd rather go with acrylic primarily because of the weight of the tank (this tank is going to be in an apartment and will probably have to be moved at some point in the future so I'd rather that it was as light as possible).

To prevent bowing, I'll probably need to have a eurobrace that's at least 2-3" wide and I'm wondering if it will be possible to use riparium planters with this sort of setup. Has anyone set up a riparium (with plant growth growing out of the tank) with a eurobraced tank? Will the brace be too much of an obstruction?
