Does anyone know where to buy the top plastic piece that goes all the way around the edge of the tank and that the brace is built into?

I hope this question is clear. Basically it's the piece that determines weather you tank is oak, or black. I need to buy the top and bottom peice for a standard 125 gal. Links would be great! Thanks for the help.

go to homedepot.. they have this clear L-shape platic with adhesive on both sides. I use them for my 30 gal tank to avoid any accident and have chips on the glass. i think it's less than $7 for a 5 foot lenght one. then use a very sharp scissors to cut it or blade, either way it will have a clean cut. cheap way to protect kids and protect the aquarium. you can find it somewhere near the crown moldings and acylic sheets they sell (somewhere at the back of the store near the lumbers-that's on our homedepot here in City of Industry, California). Hope this helps :D

oak brace? i know mine is a clear L-shape which i stick on the 4 corners to protect it from having accidental chips due to carelessness. i used it as a protector. i you want it to look oak... i would still buy the L-shape clear plastic and go find a oak design laminate and glue it on the clear L-shape... which i think is how they do it anyway... but their plastic would be thicker. check out homedepot or lowes maybe they have one that is oak design already, i know they use it for crown molding or what not. :D

check with glass cages or contact some tank manufactures and see if they can order some for you. I've seen them, just cant remember exactly where
