    Could save you on some of the plumbing work and a little $$$

    Awesome. Thanks for the help! Learning already.

    Are you sure that tank is going to stay together with the trim removed? I'd be a little concerned going rimless on a 55 gal tank with glass that thin. The trim keeps the glass from bowing out with the pressure of the water. Without the trim, it may put too much pressure on the silicone and eventually start leaking or even simply burst at the seams. Not dogging you.....just food for thought. Not something I would attempt.

    Yea I'd be slightly concerned about removing the trim also... that's just me though

    As to your return lines and drain lines also keep in mind the rating of your return pump at whatever the height of your tank above the pump. I.E. a pump rated for 1200GPH will get knocked down to 800GPH at a certain height... just another thing to keep in mind
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    The trim, I'm 100% sure, is decorative only. Every side is a seperate trim piece. I have gotten as far as removing the trim, sanding down the edges of the glass and drilling the holes. Ill update the thread with pictures when I get back in town.
