6 foot 90 gal rimless
I bought a used 6 foot long 90 gallon tank that one of the previous owners removed the rim from. The last owner kept turtles in it (low water level I assume) and he said the guy before him had it as a reef tank full of water without a rim. Well, this last owner also said it was a 125 gallon, and that was wrong, and that's enough to make me skeptical.
So, I'm keeping Rainbowfish in this 90 gallon hoss and will have a canopy and some kind of lid on it since they jump anyway, but I'm not sure if I should go to great lengths to buy and install a new plastic rim, add DIY Euro-bracing, or just use the canopy as a brace (the easiest, I think).
What are your thoughts? I searched the forum and couldn't find anybody talking about de-rimming a 6 foot 90 gallon tank.
I'll start a tank journal soon with a stand/canopy build as well as my setup and aquascaping.
