Yes that is true and Knowing this I still thought it was a cheaper way then getting actual glass cut for my tank. See the middle brace on my old 55 tank is way different then the brace on my new one which has a section in the middle that the glass tops to hit and fit snug in. The old one did not so the glass tops made for 55 gallons would just slide around and really didn't cover much. They were also very easy to knock into the tank. NO go whatsoever being I have cats that sleep on top of my tank. LoL Thanks for bringing that point up about the discoloring though I actually forgot about that.
