Ok, so I have recently got a new (to me) 5 foot, 350l tank. Got it from my brother in law, he had it set up for ages, and upgraded to a 6x2x2.
Anyway, I brought it home on Friday, and when I loaded it into the van at his end, I cut my hand as there was some flaking glass.
Didnt think too much of it as I was in a rush, but I got home and had a look, and now I am very upset!
It looks like he has maybe (I am assuming it was not there before he took the tank down -as it looks like a new chip) washed the tank outside, then when draining it of water, he has tipped it up and onto its end, and a stone or something has chipped the glass.
The chip is fairly long. It is on the base pane of glass, on the edge, on the bottom right hand side.
I have taken some pics to illustrate:
Tank (please ignore the mess, its in the dogs room at the moment, as it needs to be stored for a month ish)
This is where the chip is located:
Before I cleaned it up and removed the flakes of glass:

View from below the base (looking up through the tank)
What does everyone think? Im thinking that maybe a bit of glass on the inside of the tank base, butting up to the right hand pane to strengthen? Or should I get really angry at the brother in law?
Really, really upset :/ :S
It actually looks worse in the pictures than when I was down taking the photos :(
