Talking to someone with:
90 gallon tank and a stand. 10 years old-$160

My LFS said old tanks glass becomes Britle and breaks easy, also more chances of leaking.
Is this true?

Any place I can get a cheap stand.
Can get a 90 gallon tank without stand for $60

90g w/stand for 160 is decent...drilled?

although glass does become weaker with age...i wouldnt worry about a 10yr old tank....people run tanks for decades and dont have issues...

Home Depot...seriously though build yourself a stand...its 100 more satisfying

obviously youd need to alter the dimensions to fit your tank but these are some great stand builds...money-wise im not sure...

Thanks. I will give it a read.

Seems like the tank I will get will not be drilled.
So what's the best way to flow water to sump.

overflow box... just simply hangs on the back of your tank and does exactly what its name suggests

Should I buy one or build one?

What about the PVC overflow.
