- $200 range = (Nicer filter, deluxe 100W heater, LED lights)
Leave the chip & scratch issue alone, but make sure you clean the inside of the glass as much as you can before you fill it with water.
Use the tank for now, if you come across a better deal later on, you know what to look for.
- Be careful when you clean algae around the seals.
- What brand & model filter did you end up buying?
- What's the wattage, brand & model of the NEW heater he gave you?
At this point I dont care what kind of tank it is. I just want it to be able to hold water and be fine. I wont be able to replace it until the end of February or March even. New heater is 50 watts (will be replacing it anyway its an OLD OLD heater not sure I trust it) as for the model I see Vis but cannot read the rest forgot to check it before I put it into the tank. Filter I bought is meant for a tank 40-50 gallons I believe. Basically, all I need now is fish, heater...and maybe some plants. When I cleaned the inside I just used warm water and a cloth. I did not touch the silicone with anything rough. Ive had a few tanks before, just none with chips etc
When I went to his place to pick it up, both tanks were filled with water. He had to drain and scoop his fish out. So I saw it held water fine. I think what happened was the background he had on the tank was on the side with the chip and I just did not peel back the backing to check anything. I have the side that was covered with the backing facing the front now because of the "Hagen" symbol I am anal about stuff like that lol
