Bummer. AKA a let down.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...2217&rd=1&rd=1

okay i just pick up my new tank. Wow. Im very disappointed. First off. Its not even a 100 Gal! its only not 5ft not 6ft! It looks terrible! I know arycrlic dosent look to good when its empty but man. he said he owned it for a year. The crack that he said didnt bother him. It really bothers me! It goes down half the back off the tank. Because of that the tank has a nice bow which i dont think its suppose to have. He also grinded down the top of the tank. okay. Well now it has hills on valleies and big chips.

i will post picks soon.

And to make matters worse. i sprayed my eyes with rubbing achool when i was clean of the stickers on the back.

I just dont know what to do.

Update: i painted the back of the tank.

Ouch. Did you leave the guy negative feedback? Maybe you can work out a deal with him for a return. That sucks.. Sorry.

I would try working it out with the seller. if all attemps to contact the seller and come to a fair resolution fail, then leave the neg feedback.

I agree. Try to work out something with the seller. This is one of the negative things about buying online. Sorry.

I checked his feedback , but here is another auction where he mislabeled an item.

You can report it to ebay as well, for him misquoting his auction.

Wow... I would be disappointed too.

I guess the question you've really got to ask yourself at this point is would you still have bought it for $150 if you had known everything about it beforehand?
If yes, then just rack it up to a learning experience the hard way and try your best to enjoy your new tank.
If no, then I would contact the seller, let him know that you're not happy with the crack/repair and see if you could bring it back for a refund. Since you picked it up he wouldn't be out any money for shipping and Ebay will refund his sellers fee and he can just list it again.

Whatever you do, don't leave negative feedback until AFTER he has left positive feedback for you first.
I looked at that negative feedback he got before and he was very vindictive in leaving negative feedback for the buyer.

He does say this in the auction, though perhaps it only applied if the tank was shipped:

After seeing that crack on the tank, even I am unsatisfied. I would contact the seller of that tank immediately, and get a refund.
