 My  tank  dimensions  are  L*W*H  36*12*15.  There  are  two  braces  running  along  the  width.  I  have  a  HOB  which  I  need  to  place  on  one  of  the  sides.  Is  it  okay  to  remove  one  of  the  supports  to  accommodate  my  HOB????

 mount  the  HOB  on  the  glass  which  does  not  have  a  brace.  HOBs  are  obnoxious  in  that  way,  and  you  need  to  design  the  tank  and  braces  according  to  the  placement  of  the  HOB.
 
 I  myself  use  a  Fluval  C2,  and  thus  have  a  central  brace  only,  running  from  the  center  of  the  front  and  back  glass  panels,  at  the  top  of  the  tank.

 @  Netherwinterknights  :  I  have  the  HOB  placed  at  one  corner  of  the  back  glass.  But  the  water  on  the  other  side  of  the  tank  remains  almost  stagnant.  The  water  remains  cloudy  in  that  part  of  the  tank.
 
 @Josyjames:  Glass  thickness  8  mm.
 
 Regards,
 Swapnil

 To  overcome  the  most  obvious  thing  about  filtration  with  an  HOB  and  water  flow,  I  have  an  air  pump  pumping  in  air  from  the  opposite  direction  to  the  fluval  filter.
 
 The  filter  is  mounted  on  the  left  side,  at  the  center  of  the  narrow  pane,  and  there  are  2  air  outlets,  one  near  the  fluval's  waterfall,  and  one  directly  opposite  to  it.  I  use  small  air  flow  valves  to  control  the  air  flow  and  the  current  associated  with  it.  My  tank  has  a  neutral  flow  zone  just  beyond  the  half  way  point,  and  about  50%  depth.  In  the  rest  of  the  space,  water  flow  is  a  very  slow,  smooth  and  constant  current  almost  like  an  infinity  symbol.

 For  this  size  tank,  braces  are  really  not  required.  Since  the  width  of  the  tank  is  only  12",  you  can  remove  the  braces.

 Thanx  a  ton  Shelly.
 
 @  netherwinterknights  thank  you  for  the  reply.  I  don't  wish  to  put  air  diffuser  on  the  tank,  only  because  it  is  densely  planted  aquarium.  Also,  many  hobbyists  told  me  that  Co2  would  escape  if  air  diffuser  is  on  in  the  tank.

 IMO  thickness  of  the  glass  required  depends  on  the  height  of  the  tank.  I  have  an  36"  x18"  x  24"  tank  with  10mm  glass  and  one  cross  brace  on  the  centre  of  the  tank.  No  worries  so  far,  tank  of  running  for  around  a  couple  of  years  now.  However,  I  would  still  not  recommend  to  remove  the  braces.

 You  don't  need  braces.  I  had  a  tank  of  similar  size  in  6  mm  with  out  braces

 Thanks  Preeths.
 
 With  much  effort  I  could  remove  one  of  the  supports  from  one  end  of  the  tank.   Cheering
