Hello everyone. So today my friend gave me a tank and I have no idea what size it is. I was thinking maybe 15 or a little bigger. Im going to use to to house my baby Kribs in after they get a little bigger, then I might start another community I dont know yet. Any ideas of what I can do after the babies are gone?


PS: The tank will be cleaned and tested to make sure that there are no leaks.

V = L x W x H


It appears to be a terrarium, not an aquarium. I'm not sure that they are built to withstand being filled with water.

usually turtle tanks don't require a whole lot of water. Unless you know your friend filled it completely/just had floating basking places/had it as such for quite sometime.

Aside from the thickness of the glass, I believe the only other difference is the amount of silicone holding it together. The latter is an easy fix. If there's a visible line of silicone on the inside corners, you are probably okay.
