My Juwel Roma 240 had a fake background in when I bought it. I’ve since removed it but I’m doing so I removed the top rI'm and brace (brace was already broken). My question is.. if I fill the tank up to 30cm, will it still bow out and potentially explode? Or would it be okay, also I’m planning on doing a paludarium build so if anyone is familiar, all help would be appreciated.

You can cut panels of glass and silicon them to the top to use as braces, Mike from Aquapros does it with a lot of his tanks and it works.

Oh okay, the top til if the aquarium isn’t actually flat though, it’s curved so would it still be possible to attach a brace?

What if I don’t fill it all the way up? Is there still a risk?

That I'm not so sure about.

I doubt you need a brance.
My 100 x 40 x 40 cm tank hasn't one.


Oh wow! Is that completely rimless and braceless?
