    I have a 240l tank with 8mm glass all round its 1.2m(L) 45cm(W) 45cm(H).

    Now I just want to know should I go with eurobracing without a centre brace or just a centre brace. I just want to know will the tank bow if its got eurobracing.

    The reason why I ask is because with the eurobracing its easier to put rocks and aquascape in the tank and for light penetration.

    Eurobracing fine and sure will not bow. If you go 10mm than you have a rimless tank.

    you can euro brace at the size indicated in 8mm but i like 10mm its a little better.. the 2mm makes a huge difference to the structural integrity of the tank but adequatley braced it will be fine in 8mm with NO center brace...
