yeah selling it might be easier....the work if the project doesn't bother me, as i am a contractor....but i just didn't know how the epoxy or glue would hold after reassembly...and the tank doesn't have a rim or anything...it's just an acrylic rectangle...
id hate to see you do all this, then fill it, stock it and that side gives out. what you want to do can be done, but i personally would not risk it failing to ruin my tank, livestock and home. just my opinion ofcourse. i also still suggest moving something else for the tank to fit to where you were going to put the tank in the first place. there arnt any spare bookshelves in the house?
thank you all for the good advice....so here is my plan...i am thinking, if i cannot trade the tank then i will as a last resort cut and reseal the tank....your 180 gallon build was great. i have all those tools, and it looks pretty straight forward.....but the practice is what counts...i will be practicing alot before i would cut and weld the tank back together...so i will just sit and wait...i put the 125 on craigs list...hope fully someone with a 100 or 90 will trade...if not i will post pics on the whole build....because i need a canopy and a stand, and the thoughts if making a wet/dry sump for this project...angain thanks to all for the advice and i will keep you all posted..
and sorry bearwithfish i got that tank from a buddies girl friend.....she said it was taking too much room in there house. it was a saltwater tank and they moved to town, and had no room in their new house...so he got a 90 and the 125 sat up stairs empty for 2 1/2 years....thank you....but yeah this all happened in michigan...
