    Tank plastic bracing, where to find?

    Hello all.

    I recently took down my 150 gallon glass aquarium for a move. And am looking to reseal it while it's down. Would also like to replace the plastic
    support that wraps around the top of the tank and has the center brace in it. The current one is broken. And has been weakend by time and possibly lights.

    The tank is sound other than that, and has never had an issue with leaks. Just want to do some maintenance on it while its down. However I'm not sure where to look
    for such a thing.

    Thanks in advance for any feed back on this.

    - Joe

    If you want an OEM style frame check out https://www.aquariumframeswholesale.com/retail for a tank your size you will have to fabricate it out of their generic frame pieces...

    If your tank is newer and you know the brand you can sometimes get a local pet store to order you the exact replacement but it's usually cost prohibitive...

    You can also consider Euro bracing or having an aluminium or steel (powder coated) frame made locally depending on your budget...
