Rimless VS Euro-braced?

5 posts in this topic

Rimmless or Euro-Braced

 

Having a new tank made. Cant decide between:

1. Rimless

&

2. Euro-braced

 

Never had a big tank Rimless.

1. Does water slosh over top when cleaning glass with magnet?

2. Do the lights glare in your eyes?

3. How do you vent all the evaporation?

Getting a 96"X36"X 24"to 27".

 

So who likes rimless

Who likes eurobraced

And why?11b956a052ba275131491c6fb21d15d8.jpgf9c83765bfedbd6d4b990a8d74147de3.jpg

Euro braced- I just think it's better. Stronger, less likelihood of things jumping out if you aren't running a canopy or screen top- you can set stuff down on it when doing maintenance...

Thanks Nate. I'm leaning that way. My system will evaporate 15 gallons a day and I want a vented canopy. 

Euro-braced is stronger and less messy when cleaning. Tank can be taller with same thickness glass than Rimless.

The biggest thing with rimless.. you make an absolute mess when you clean the glass. Water is always sloshing out

I think that depends on the water level and the overflow. 

I really don't have issues and it's about 3/4" from the top.

...Unless I go crazy with the magnetic scraper. You just have to be slower.
