I have a question about an acrylic tank i want to build. Im thinking of going 16" tall with braces but i wonder if i went 24 inches tall without braces and only fill tank 15" high as it would have been had i braced it, would the added height support the walls enough that braces may not be used?

I dont want to get into acrylic thickness or different glues or techniques, would the extra 8" of height function as good good or better than the usual eurobrace or cross brace methods?

Thanks in advance.
