Hi , do you have the tin foil barbs in the same as the koi , one is tropical the koi are coldwater . I keep koi in a 350 litre tank , but only until they are about 4 inches long they are then either put into my pond or moved on. Koi need a pond and are not suitable to be permantly kept in a tank , incidently my 350 litre tank has a 120 litre sump filter as koi are an extremly messy fish

Diversa is polish producer making tanks as long as for example Juwel is (which is very popular here german product). They are definitely better quality than Juwel though. For example the sides in Juwel rion 400 are made of 8mm glass instead 10mm. Diversa is 10mm all around. Juwel uses plastic strengthening braces which are part of the cover. Diversa tanks have proper glass bracing. Diversa's standard plastic covers are kinda flimsy looking in comparison to Juwel but they have premium aluminium covers selection that can be bought separately.

Hope that helps a bit

Hi bart i have a diversa 450 a few years now with no real problems but there is no brace on my tank i presumed the aluminium was the brace itself, what do u think

It doesn't have to be braced in the middle front to back. It's probably enough to have braces along the front and back. Although all the photos of Diversa 450l tanks are showing middle brace as well, i have seen them in real and they were properly braced.

Also did you buy it new? If not maybe previous owner removed it.

I bought it second hand i was looking for marks to see if anything was removed but i couldnt see anything, the lid is quite heavy duty on it and attatched tightly to the tank that is y thought that was the brace itself
