RussellTheShihTzu Four separate pieces of glass or acrylic held together by glue. Nothing sounds quite like the BANG of a rimless splitting a seam.

One third filled should be fine. But for anyone wanting to do the same and fill more than that the information on bracing.

Can't wait to see photos!

Hmmm... I thought rimless were just that, no rim, just a single piece of glass all the way to the top. I know the larger sized rimless aquariums are made extra thick. I have seen tutorials about how to remove the rim. Just wondering since I was only going to fill it about 1/3 with water.....

RussellTheShihTzu I would am not sure how well glued rimmed are as opposed to rimless. I would find someone who builds aquariums and ask if it's possible.

Can I go rimless?

Hi, I got a new (to me) 55g (yes, totally hooked, obsessed, and unapologetic!) and I want to know if I can take off the top rim. It has a 10" wide, thick glass support strut across the top. I am going to make a waterfall riparium and I don't want the rim if I can get away with it. Thoughts?
