Hi there,

I was wondering how far apart is the bracing usually on a 4x2x2. The reason I ask is I have been out this morning collecting possible wood pieces and got some absolute ripping pieces but unsure if some will fit through the bracings on the tank.

Regards Darren

If you talking about a middle brace on a 48" tank subtract about 4" for the brace in the middle and you get about 44" and to be be on the safe side for lip on each end you should have at least about 20 inch opening on each side. Just an estimate cause mine is wider, but custom made for my tank.

4 foot tanks all seem to have a single brace in the middle, as far as I can remember from looking at them in stores. I agree with "the old man"'s calculation.
