30g 7mm glass rimsless tank safe?!?

A local guy had 30 tanks giving away for free. Was from an old pet store.

I grabbed a couple.tanks.

Anyhow the one 30g has nothing but glass and the glass is 7mm thick.

Is this safe?

That is thinner than most calculators will recommend. Does it look derimmed, or was it built that way?

Can always fill it and see.

I found a chart and it called for 6mm for 30g

If the chart does not explicitly specify a braceless and frameless tank then the numbers are not applicable.

It depends on the dimension of the tank I would think.
