    hey, just after some advice , i just bought a 18"-10"-10" (inch) clearseal tank and i want it to be an open tank design and under the hood there are these to thin pieces of glass attached on the inside of the aquarium on the front and back walls....my question is are these necessary and can i remove them..is there a reason for them being there???? they do look a bit ugly due to clearseal are messy with the mastic gun..
    advice and comments welcome...especially those with experience who have already removed the glass bits.
    cheers.....passerby

    Hiya, i'd whip them off. Be careful though, just take it slow.

    Some people will advise against it but if it were my tank then i'd have them straight off.

    It's your call ;)

    a sharp razor blade will remove any left behind silicon from the glass with ease

    Intend to leave mine on to be used as bracing for a sheet of perspex to act as a condensation guard. Guess they are a bit ugly though.
