Doesn't. I think I remember him debating the need to add some..
Well you know, with this being a shallow 7' tank, it might be wise to add braces. How thick is the glass?
No braces, and I doubt there is any need to add any. The glass is quite thick, close to 1/2". I haven't done a "wet test" yet but I doubt there will be any bowing.
I really wanted to get some work done on this today, so I went to several lumber yards. Apparently today is national "terrible wood day" and I didn't want my canopy to be made with some of the worst wood I've seen in quite some time. I'm going to be heading out to the lumber yard(s) again as soon as possible to get good wood! Also looking at lighting for 4 hours today, definitely going with the CFLs!
