Door edge guard, very nice. I'll have to look at my tank and see the finish of the base if it has a rolled edge or not. The door edge guard may prove neater than the simple pot base. The latter holding water (even with the pre-made holes in these) and not being the "exact" diameter. Suspect there would be a length of edge guard left over to tuck away for replacement sometime down the road....
