Ok , i got wat u mean already bro . So in this case u cant measure from the top bracing . I think u got your own way of measuring .

The silicon after the bottom bracing , are they flat or slightly sloping downwards ?

no..still about 2inch

from tank side edge to edge is 760mm
from tank internal brace to brace is 660mm (without taking silicon into account)

I have go thru again ur own measurement at post 113 . Should be ok if ur bottom bracing is 2 inch . Just double check the EOS slanting part since your bottom and top bracing different size . Ur EOS side will be abit weird since its like protuding inwards .

Do update ur picture once completed .

Actually i find measuring tank without EOS and bracing easier but putting it in will not be as nice and fitting compare to those with full euro bracing .

With bracing the acrylic just fit in nicely .
I am using only 3mm thick acrylic, think 3mm is too thin, should have get the 5mm instead.. cos now I notice weight of the acrylic also play a part in putting in flat on the bottom.. and also because it heavier, it will not shift easily.

I also notice when I fist put it down, it will warp abit, but after a week or so, it will become flat (maybe because it only 3mm that is why is wrapped abit initially)

I think orange will be goos. Red and yellow too extreme. Since u have the flexibility to choosenow, why dont go for beigh? Very nice imo.

I wont go for yellow cause too extreme. Tank wont look good.

If given a choice i will go for ultra light brown or cream. Since using acrylic, dont go for conventional oyama colours. Thats my feel.

In the near future i may change to light brown.
