Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      Hello.

      So I have 2 4x2x2 tanks left to setup up, they use plastic clip on braces which I really like issue is I was not given the right amount so I am 2 short!

      One of the 4x2x2 has half a brace I guess, it runs around the inside of the tank making a square box but has no center brace going across, do you think its safe to run this without the center brace? or should I just wait and buy some glass to make a center brace? they are starfire glass 10mm thick not sure if this makes any difference?

      I wouldn't. If you are missing pieces, wait until you get them, especially if the tank was designed to have them.

      I wouldnt risk it. Even if it doesn't give straight away, It may do over time. Especially with a larger volume of water.

      Thanks guys!

      None of the tanks actually use braces they have the plastic clip on ones, which I love makes it easy to fit any size driftwood in etc just empty the tank remove the brace(clips on) and all good.

      I think I will just go to a glassy and get a 6-10mm glass piece cut and whack that on. I have a broken tank with the right size brace but I couldn't get them off cant get a razor in between to cut =(!
