I have the dims of the 55 gallon tank... 48"x 13" x 21".... Am I OK to have the baffles cut to 13" wide? Will this provide a tight seal? Too wide? I want tightest fit while sitting straight. Obviously my heights will vary for each piece.

Heres a link to my build,http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/f6/independance-tank-207401-4.html
The height of the baffles can be the same just raise the center one an inch higher than the others. I stood my tank on end and used books to hold the glass panes in place until the silicone dried. I also used books to create the gap in the bubble trap. I allowed 1/4" less than the inside width, that have me an 1/8" caulk bead on either side.
