Thank you for your answer Quietman!Assuming the silicone seal is good all around, then this shouldn't be a problem. Red Sea designs tanks this way and my front glass has no support what so ever. Makes sense when you consider that the forces on the glass are outward (tensile stress) and not downward (shear stress). The strength of a rimless is the silicone (which is impressive) which is partly why glass is thicker in rimless - more surface area for silicone.
All that said...every manufacturer has best practices and design requirements to be met. A quick email to them will allay all concerns.
Thank youBy the way...if you fill it with water* and it blows out the front glass, I'll accept that I was completely in error here.
*Freshwater is easier to clean up for testing.**
**Hopefully my acerbic wit and dry sense of humor translates well to European sensibilities.
Exactly, the one side error concerns me, as in my eyes, that is the weakest point, that can/will break.Didn't realize it was like that on one side only. So yeah, thinking it's at least a quality issue if not a structural concern. If you bought it new recently, try to find phone number or maybe the return route (or at least threaten it and see if they justify why it's not accepted). If used...well, slowly add water for the test.
With what I'm seeing here...if they responded and said...it's within our tolerances for build and while we can't guarantee, blah blah blah I'd accept it. I can see how no response would be a bit concerning.
