Does your rimless 10g bow ALOT?

I have too many 10 gallon tanks just sitting around.

Out of boredom I removed the rim of one, filled it up and HOLY COW

I put my square up to it and theres a good bit, maybe 1/4" (with the square flush to one side)

I can push the sides in with my hands.


Anyone have rimless 10 gallon fail?

How is your deflection?

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.

1/4" sounds about right compared to what I've seen. I haven't heard about any of the ghetto rimless 10g tanks failing.

I keep the water level at least 3-4 inches below the top of the tank, so mine doesn't bow out enough to be visible.
