Thank you polukoff. I agree as long as the aquarium is small than the risk is minimal as the force of water is not great enough to break the seal at those sizes, Even 20 gallons sounds risky to me. 30 and 40 gallons would be outside of my comfort zone.
The first picture you posted is exactly what I'd like to do with my tank. I have already gone through the process of removing the rim and it looks as I wanted. Thank you for the aqua tools link!
Tazman - your letter to marineland uses the example of a 220 gallon aquarium... my tank is 2.5 gallons. Your example as irrefutable proof is 100x larger than my tank. And I agree with you, a 220g tank is much to large for a DIY project like this and should only be purchased rimless as it requires a degree in engineering at that size. However, what would marineland say to a 2.5 gallon, or even 10, maybe 20 gallon tank that is properly sealed by silicon? I will for that sake reword my initial posts to limit the size of tank to 10 gallons to ensure caution.
