Just curious, but has anyone tried derimming a 5B?

Yes, I think Jdiesels did. It didn't work out very well. The black silicone wouldn't come off for him.

Here are some pretty clear pictures of his result after attempting to de-rim the tank. I believe black silicone is stronger and tougher to remove than standard clear.

I think it looks good with the rim, the black silicone and rim all flow well. YMMV

I understand, and thanks for the link. heh I actually had no choice. I was sent a beautiful 5B from a buddy and the bottom of the tank was broken in shipping. Luckily he had insurance.

So, I figured I would do an experiment with this tank. I de-rimmed the bottom to removed the broken glass, and am going to do something very unconventional and experimental. If it fails, it fails, but what the heck. LOL

We've all complained about the glass top being too snug in fitting, but that'll be advantageous for my experiment.

Since I removed the broken bottom pane, I'm going to silicone the bottom rim back on. Silicone around the lip and place the COVER on the bottom over the silicone. Then silicone inside the tank between the edge and cover, and outside the tank between edge and cover.

If it works, I was able to fix the tank for less than $5. If not, I'll have a 3g waterfall. LOL

I'll keep everyone updated, and probably duplicate my posts about this in my experimental thread. Unfortunately I can't find the charger to my camera right now... but hopefully soon...

Nice... I suppose testing will be done outside or in a bathtub.
