    120 Gallon DIY Rimless and Braceless????

    I'm am looking to build at 48"L 24"W 24"H out of 12mm glass. I would like it to be rimless and no braces. It would be for a salt water reef tank. I have looked at quite a few glass thickness calculators and googled this question but nothing I have tried or found has given me a satisfactory answer to pull the trigger on the glass order. Thanks in advance.

    At 960lb of water at 24" deep i would use a brace or go with thicker glass. Yes i like to err on the side of caution.

    Any details would be also helpful. What thickness should I buy? If I lower it an inch our two will it be safe? Homer you mentioned a brace. Is that just a center brace? I could probably live with that. How wide should it be? Thanks a lot.
