The metal cage provides all the strength as the thin plastic acts like a liner (only). So if you cut the cage, you will need to reinforce the compromised cage again. Either with a strong surrounding frame around the new open edge or some cross braces. Could use wood or wire as a cross brace. 

The deeper you re-fill, the stronger the new bracing needs to be. 

There are a few aquaponic forums that show IBC modification pretty well. Earth, gravel or clay ball media is heavier than water but it's the same principle.

Spongebob, do you still have the tanks and ibc tank?. Are there any leaks in the tanks?. I can pick up this weekend possibly. Txt me on 0458343373, and if possible send me some photos of the tanks and ibc tank. Thanks
