Default Hi - rimless tank build?

Newbie here, found you through Pangea Forum. I currently keep Gargoyle Geckos and am hoping to get their permanent vertical vivs built in the new year.

Has anyone made/purchased a rimless tank?

I want to convert 20 gallon longs, and de-rim, but I'm not quite sure how to supplement air movement without sacrificing structural integrity of either the front panel/door or sides. Or would drilling holes on either side be sufficient? Located in the Northeast, so humidity is generally all over the place, but notoriously terrible in summer.

Any ideas/advice would be greatly appreciated!

I'm having a hard time picturing what you are trying to do. Rimless to me means lifeless, I used to be a reefer

It sounds like you are going to buy a standard aquarium tank, remove the plastic rim around the top and replace it with glass?

Is that what you mean?

Hi Revasaurus!
Welcome to Dendroboards. The is a link to a thread I made on converting an aquarium to a vivarium, it should answer many of your questions:
