the surround of my tanks have 5 inches brace, it is impossible to cut one piece and have good fit.

If your tank have center bracing, then you must make sure the acrylic can put into the tank.

Hmm then what if you trim the acrylic on the side by a few mm? Maybe that would make it stick to the glass panel instead of lying on the slope. Just my thought.

Try use a long pvc pipe to press down the acrylic at side (near ur sloping silicone ) and random spot around the acrylic see if the acrylic is totally flat .

I'm curious to see how dirty the base of the tank is if the acrylic is totally flat to the base .... any pics ?
