Question for you guys!

Hey guys, I have 2 questions.

1) I have a rimless tank that has rounded corners on one side, and normal right angle corners on the other. Which side would you choose to have as the front?

2) My 10g tank is 20 1/4" long, while my stand is just under 18" long. Would you risk having the tank go over the edge about 1.25" on each side? Is there a large risk of the bottom breaking/cracking?

Thanks again guys!

Jimmy

curved in front... :-) won't get that algae under the edges of the silcone sealant showing that way... is this acrylic? If so, be careful wtih what you scrub clean with.

You could put a peice of plywood that fits the tank on top of the stand. I myself wouldln't let a tank hang over like that... well, if I just had some peat moss and a lizard in it I might. But certainly not 9+ gallons of water and gravel and ... WEIGHT.
