So both my side panels on my 72 gallon bow front ended up getting cracked over time at both of the respective tops of there glass. So I broke the tank down and in the process I cracked the plastic frame to the top of the tank. I cannot find any place at all that sells replacement frames for bow front tanks at all and every idea I see on YouTube doesn't seem like it will be a good idea to do because I'm afraid of the tank busting open if I try there methods. Any help would be appreciated from anyone

Bump! Do you have any photos that you could share? I believe once the frame around those tanks are compromised, the tank is as well. I hope someone has a better answer for you but I wouldn't risk a repair if it's bad. Best of luck to you :)
