    Good Morning

    Im planning a new tank , dimensions 1,2L * 600cmH* 700cmW
    I was wondering if anyone has a pick of a similar tank, i specifically wanna know how to brace the tank.
    i want the overflow in the centre ,against one of the 600* 700 sides as It will have a 3 angle view.
    Any input would be appreciated
    Thanx

    Is this tank going to be viewed on both the 1.2m sides and one 600x700 end?

    I think it would look great.

    I would go for eurobracing and maybe one cross brace in the centre for peace of mind. Don't forget the bracing at the bottom of the tank as well.
