Default G Rimless Tanks Any Good?

So I was looking for an ADA or other low iron glass tank. I thought I'd found a well known GLA brand tank so I bought it. Them I realized I had bought a G Rimless brand. It had no frame so I am concerned about durability. It is only 5.4 gallons and will be on a mat on my desk if that makes a difference.
Thanks.

What are the measurements L, W, H? How thick is the glass? Do the seams looks good (no bubbles, etc).

A tank that small, I would think is fine. It's going to be so short that the long side won't have much strain on it. But if they used some super thin window glass, then it would be a concern just from a fragility standpoint. You don't' want it to get bumped and the glass crack.
