Is there any difference between putting the sides on top of the bottom side or putting them on the side of the bottom glass?like this one:

The working concept, and it sounds logical, though I dont actually KNOW if it even really matters...

When the side panes all sit on the bottom pane, there is a uniform platform for all the sides, so no cross or shear pressure is exerted against the seams.

Elsewise, the sides and bottom might be slightly out of level, making for odd weight pressures against the seams.


If that actually makes a difference or not...I have no idea.

Zoom in on a closeup of an ADA tank. It looks like the bottom is inside the sides and the ends are inside the longer front & back panes. That's the way I've seen other tanks made too.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

That would make sense. That would put the tensile stress of the silicone on the weakest joints and the shear stress on the others.
