The largest tank I have ever de-rimmed is a 20 gallon, and even that made me uneasy. I think 50 gallon is too big to de-rim.

last night i just removed the black plastic but not de-rimmed, i think i will stick to that for safety, if i remove the bottom plastic is that okay also? i wanna make the tank look rimless without the black plastic, the glass thickness is 5mm.

thank you michael
