Glass tanks


Recommended Posts

My 29G bows a ton.

Most tanks bow. The ones with center braces would bow a bit less. In terms of how the glass tanks are designed, that deflection reduces the stress. .125" is normal. More than that is..... Terrifying.

Be sure not to lean on the tank when full as hear you can if the bow is pretty severe and keep an eye on things like the top rim seal. A lot of the rims and braces will crack because they were leaned on when under load.
