I know how you feel. I REALLY want to like rimless tanks. I REALLY tried to give the rimless thing a try with my old Solana 34 tank. It had the super nice looking "disco ball" halide fixture and all. I really liked the idea of making the glass box so clean and sleek, and the lighting so visually appealing. In the end, my observations about my rimless experiences: 1. Too easy to splash over the edges while moving the cleaning magnet around or whatnot. 2. Could NEVER get the light spill contained just right in my room. In the end I build a slim wood canopy for my Solana and was about to install thin eurobraces just to contain spills... moved soon after, but that was the plan.
