View Full Version : Where to get new top center brace for my 42G bowfront

Hey Guys! I have a 42G bow-front aquarium and the center brace broke so was wondering if anyone could point in the right direction on where I could find a replacement top frame? The tank is in excellent condition, aside from the support brace. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much!

Go to the nearest glass shop. They should be able to fix, no problem

If you know the brand of the tank you have then I would try your LFS. If they can't help then search on-line.

Easier way is to cut a piece of acrylic to size (can get this at HD or Lowes), cut out the old brace (use bar clamps to support the tank while doing this, leave a 1" barb from the old brace in place, and screw in the arylic using nylon screws. Top to bottom, done in about 1 hours and it looks nice.
