on one of my 55's i have a jbj lighting system that just rests on the tank ! well the other day i seen that the cross member was cracked at the front of the tank even with the frame! so i thought thats weird wonder why it started to separate like that ?!?!? mabe the heat of the lights?!?!? so i wasnt to worried cause it was still holding ect... and new bigger tank is needed anyway !! well friday i went to pull the lights off to clean and as soon as i lifted then up i hear snap and the tank shakes !! i was shocked for a sec !! i had an old hob
wet dry that i was using as an additional fuge so it was full of water hanging on the back my guess about 40lbs!! heheh well to make a long story a bit shorter its been 2 days and the tanks still holding water thank god ! but from the cross member to the front of the tank i can fit my finger in between them !!heheh looks funny bowed out like that !! new tank coming today
now one question ! how long could the tank hold up ya think in this condition?? my though is to use this tank as a test run and was thinking on drilling a hole half way down for a bulk head and run the tank half full as a fuge !! but keep it in the garage just in case it leaked hehehe !
