    I have a old 20 long that my girlfriend just pointed out would fit in our china cabinet if it were not for the trim on the tank. So I am debating on taking off the rim. I know it is safe to remove the top but I am wondering if it is safe to remove the bottom? So anyone here have any experience with derimming tanks? Thanks

    It is safer to remove the bottom more so than the top. Since it is a 20L and it fits snugly in there should not be a problem.
