Diy tank out of spare/broken tanks


I plan on building a DIY tank out of 2 10 gallons and a spare sheet of 20"x20" sheet of glass. What is the chances of me making this tank without a top brace? I want to go rimless on this tank. What do you all think?

If you're handy with a bottle of sealant, have sturdy enough glass and a level place to set the tank you should be fine. I have a ten that bows a LOT when filled to the trim and other tanks that don't budge even when overflowed.

I've seen 4 55 gallon tanks sealed together in a long row work. Just seal, and brace properly.
