    Hi,

    I am planning a rimless starfire tank. Somewhere between 2m and 2.4m in length. Height, good question-shallow reef is an option. Would appreciate some opinions on glass thickness (do not like bracing). And f you have one, some pics would be appreciated together with some info on who built the tank.

    Thanks in advance.

    Werner

    I've seen many built from 24mm but all depends how high the water will be

    I suppose 'as high as possible' doesn't help
