Hi bro thanks! According to bro flair, you can use those big suckers you find at hardware shops and pull the plastic out.. Its gonna be hard with fishes in tank espescially when mine is 1 pc.. But i dont intend to take it out haha.. Also according to flairs dimensions, i minus a few mm from both length and breath so when taking out itll be easier!

Chose glossy white instead of Matt white as I can't find Matt white 5mm.. No regrets as it's not to glaring and also it's easier to rub off when there's algae as advised. His measurements are very accurate, a good fit!! Enjoy the pics..

Before and after:











very nice bro! haha 3ft tank can do it?

Hi bros,

I am interested to have a acrylic base for my 4 x 1.5 x 1.5ft tank

There is no bottom bracing. Only top euro bracing and a center bracing.

Any advice on the number of pieces I should divide the base into?

I suggest 1 whole pc for ur 4ft base. Will trap less dirt. 3mm acrylic will do.

Ok , quite free today so post some pics here to share how to measure.

This is top view of the tank . If u use this way to measure , make sure your bottom bracing same size as the top . ( Measuring tape just measure from the top follow my drawing red line . If want to use 2 pcs , just divide into half )
So far I know of a bro using 1 whole pc acrylic for the base of his 4.7ft long tank .

This one is the tricky part EOS which I get to ask a lot ,

Actually , very simple .

Just take A minus B = C & D dimension . Simple ?
( Everything measure from the top , not put the measuring tape inside ur tank hoh )
