Hi, I have just bought a 5ft by 2ft by 2ft aquarium, unfortunately the tank comes with a brace around the rim. My plan is to run a 2000ef all pond solutions filter but the pipework will not fit. Anyone hand this problem before or know a solution?

No gaps just glass all around the top. It looks to be around 2". Also they offered me glass sliding lid for extra £35 but I lve just realised it useless.

What about this sort of thing Clear Extruded Acrylic Tube Cut To Size

I don't know if heating and bending extruded would cause to much in built stress in the tube. Maybe cut 7 bits with 15° angle to form half a dodecagon and glue them together. That would give a gentle curve to stop turbulence causing lost flow rate.

Postage is the expensive part.
