custom built bracing aquarium

Anyone know about bracing for custom built aquarium? It going to be glass 84x24x30. I am told I could go with euro brace on top and bottom, does anyone know if that enough? would I need center brace on the bottom and top as well?

Thanks

This size must be to fit into a particular spot in your house that is this size plus just a bit more. Especially from end to end. As there are a few tanks close to this, I'd just buy one of them. The extra space at the end can be taken up by a decoration of your
choosing. Glasscages also makes custom built tanks.
Other than that you might go on You Tube and check out the DIY plywood aquariums that you can make yourself and only need to order the glass. That you can fit into that space since you are buildingt it.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Thanks for the advise, perfecto has very nice one that same size and would work for me, problem is I think I want to go with bean animal overflow, which means I would need to make tank a bit smaller, 84x21x30 instead to allow for the space I have in the room.

Never thought it would be so many options to decide. ha my head starting to hurt as now it finally time to decide everything and buy
