my 125 project
I got this tank from a guy on a local site posted that I was looking for a 125, he said he had a 125 but it had a leak and was willing to get rid of it for cheep I asked how much he wanted for it he replyed 20bucks. I had been at the local fish store the night before and almost bought a new 125 that had a chip in the corner for 250$, origanaly 320$ but wouldn't take 250 cash, so when I heard that this guy wanted 20bucks for the tank I thoght even if I couldn't fix it it would be worh buying so here is what I gotAttachment 23143and this is what I have doneAttachment 23146
no man dont...really that tank is out of commission dont risk it.
I think that when it comes to this hobby you really have to look at quality and make good investments or else your not going to get the best out of it long term. I mean I get that its a big tank and it was cheap and everything but there is a reason why it was so cheap and theres a reason why new tanks are high in price.
I hope that in the end you decide to do whats best because when your cheap with somethings(which I myself have been cheap in alot of cases) your going to suffer consequences.
you know what I mean?
I have taken out all of the cilicone cleaned the tank for what seams to be weeks (probly 9 days) and resealed everything in the tank the next step is to test it with water i will only fill it about a quarter of the way and let it sit for 72 hrs and see if I did a good enough job if not I only have wasted about 40 bucks and some HARD labor
@MAC29 you may want to drain and fill it a few times to check that the seals can handle the the stress of filling and draining. With a tank that was that dirty I would worry about getting a really good seal even if I cleaned it well.
