I emailed the guy.

Hey its John.

I'm kind of having some issues with the tank.

The more I look at, the more problems i see. First off the tank isn't a 100 gal. its only 60", long not 72" which is like 85 gal. 2nd it looks a lot more beat up then it did in the photos. I know tanks look pretty ugly when they're dry. But its really in sad shape. 3rd whats with the top of the aquarium? Its really messed up. Its chip and really ruff and the canopy wont even fit on it.

To say the least im not very happy. I looking towards returning it but im will to talk about it. I would hope that you try to make it right. please email me and will work things out if possible.
and youll never guess what he used to fix the huge crack, liquid nails.

Also if he pulls a fast one, my sister-in-law works at a local ebay district. Im sure she'll help.

Anyway Thanks for the support everone.

Good News! I just got a email from the Seller.

Quote:
I'm sorry that you feel that way about the tank. It's a good tank and it's exactly like it was in the picture. But if you are unsatisfied with it we can do a return or maybe we can work out a different payment. give me a call tommorrow and we'll work something out. thanks.
Thank Goodness! I'm just plaining on returning the tank.
But I still have a problem.

I painted the tank as soon as i got it! I hope he doesnt care. Its not like it made it any wrose. But this could throw a wrench into everything.

I think it is acrylic, might scratch it. If you used latex paint, try a product called "goof off". That's what I used when I painted houses. Try it in a small area, just in case.....

Sure, you painted it, but it should be no big deal IMO, the seller sold you a tank with a nasty crack. Not to be mean, but in the pics you showed us the crack was not "barely noticeable". If anything, I think the tank looks better painted. Here's hoping you reach an agreement.

severum mama your right

I told the guy i painted the tank and wanted to return it.

He Said:
Quote:
Well lets see if we can work something out. I'm unable to take the tank back (thats surpising!) but maybe we can work out a discount. Give me a call and we'll talk about it. Thanks
So What should i take it for? I'll post more pics if needed.

Once again thanks for the help everbody. I hope I can cheer up and that I can close this topic soon.

I think $50, at most $75 if that doesn't do it for him.

I would insist on returning it. With a crack like that, and how beat up it is, it is defintly not worth what you paid for it. And if you are not happy with the tank, and do not want it, why should you be stuck with it? He should take it back, give yopu your money back, and relist it if he can't keep it for himself. He can take the tank back, he just doesn't want to...
