For bracing you can do euro style but without connecting to the sides. My aquarium is made by company who do lots of this kind of stuff and theres no bowing on my 100g. Plus is that you can put input/output pipes/hoses
Thanks for posting that! So your tank has bracing on the back and front glass panes but none on the sides? Do you have no cross brace since you called it a euro-brace?
I was thinking about doing something like that since I thought that glass braces running on the front and back should be strong enough to keep the glass from bowing without a cross-brace, but I am no engineer and cannot be sure.
If it's not too much trouble could you also add one more picture showing the whole tank with such bracing?
