are bottom braces a requirement for 6foot tanks? 180gallons
Can i use 2 side braces (4inches each) for a 3 foot tank? Instead of one in the middle
DO I NEED TO BRACE MY AQUARIUM? Its dimensions are 4f x 1.6f x 1.6f , it already have brace in the sides
Stodoys plans has a very large project base.
That is temporary fix
Joey brother, Ur expertise is great appreciated and needed pls my friend 🙏. How do we remove the glass bottom graces inside of the tank around the perimeter, especially the bottom middle ones? Like I understand u can get the silicone on the edges out with blades, but how about the large round dots of silicone glued on the point of loads. If that makes sense.. Iv tried searching every where online.. 😭 😭
bro i followed these instructions and the brace popped….
Would it be possible to silicone a different material as a brace. Such as a wood piece, metal sheet or hard plastic? Im sure aesthetically glass on glass would look best. But just curious.
Thank you this is the knowledge I NEEDED
Is it possible to brace a running aquarium, i have everything established, but now learning more about this hobby is making me panic. Can i brace the top just by reducing water level?
Mr. Joey, thanks for all these videos. I have been able to make my own aquarium and filter in half of the cost which market offers. Plus I gained knowledge and satisfaction while doing all this..
I have a glass 136.5 gallon missing a brace. The glass is 1/2" thick. Where do I find a 18" x 6" x 1/2" thick piece of tempered glass? Would polycarbonate work instead?
The link for your calculator is broken and redirects to your book. Is there no calculator anymore?
If the glass that I’m using for bracing is thinner than the glass the aquarium is made up of can I instead create more bracing with the thinner glass rather than trying to find thicker glass? That is, if I can only find glass that’s .125 inches (3.175 mm) when I need 6mm, can I make thicker bracing? Or at least is there somewhere I can find 6mm glass?
If you dont have the right thickness of glass for the brace can you silicone 2 pieces together to get desired thickness
How many support required for 4 ft x 1.4ft × 2ft and height tank
So the trim is only for looks and doesn't help keep the tank in tact? I have a 55 gallon and I want to go trim less, but scared that it will come undone. Can anyone help with questions? I have an old 55 gallon tank I got and it is fricken Heavy!!! I am 5'10 and 220 lbs and it is heavy for me. Plus the glass is very very thick.
Hi, we have built an aquarium which is open from three sides. When will fill it with water the further side glass looks completely bent inwards. Any thoughts?
can i go rimless on a 75 gallon glass aquarium?
Hopefully you see this considering this video is over 4 years old, but would bracing like this work with your method of diy trim? I have a used 55 gallon the didn’t come braced and the trim was broken so I had to get rid of the trim.
heyy..! my tank size is 4/2/2 and top middle bracing broke how happen it and now what am doing …?
Thanks again man, you literally have a video for all my questions!
Can you take two 55s an make 1 tank
I dont see why anyone would want glass bracing! Im building a tank That's 60x24x24. I'll put one glass brace in middle (24×6). If you do all glass bracing it takes up room getting into, and putting and taking things out of tank! I have decided to do the one, and make my own bracing to go around tank.. was looking for ideas on YouTube, but couldn't find anything.. so not sure how I will do it yet. Thinking aluminum, something that want rot, but not only want it to look good…but different.. whole reason I'm building the tank.
I know this is way late but I was wondering if it’s still strong and sturdy if I put the brace on the inside of the tank
