keep in mind that cutting down a tank with a 3" bow is not gonna be fun. the tank is deformed in the middle from bowing outward, when you cut it you will have the new top of the tank right in the middle of that bow. so unlike a new tank that's square on all four sides, this tank will be curved along the display panels because of the bowing. trying to cut a double curved top panel to match the bow in the front & back panels of the tank??? not really ideal. trying to cut a square top panel & then clamp/compress the display panels back to being square & install the top panel??? not as easy as it sounds. just a few things to think about that i learned the hard way.Appreciate all of the input guys, I have been leaning away from taking this on as many of you have suggested, but dang do I want it I may see if he'll drop the price to the point it would make sense to cut it down.
Could anyone provide input on what would the an appropriate height for this thickness of acrylic?
