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!

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.
I had a rimless fail and when I asked our local pet store (been in business with the same owners for 40+ years) they said the way to brace a rimless is from the inside edges. Wish I could explain it but it is like having the black rim (only in clear glass) around the inside diameter.

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?
