Hi, update,

we bought acrylic etc, but when we tried to drill through the old brace it's snapped. So we also have a new plastic brace, how do we take the old one off? (Apart feom very carefully!) Only about half an inch to work with. Tank has water in too.

Thanks for ideas, I have searched but cuoldn't find, will keep looking though, Jackie.

I really have no idea, but when you remove it, you should put some cling film or something over the surface of the water, fixed with tape so nothing harmful falls in.

I'm sure someone else will tell you how to actual remove it though.

Hi the main problem is that there is a lip of plastic super glued under the lip around the edge of the tank that looks impossible to remove.

One ther question is then, can we silicone the new brace NEXT to the old one even though that makes it off centre?

Thanks J.
