So I filled her up with water and cleaned it up a bit.
So next by next weekend if there are no leaks I will start painting. I kinda think the stand is dark enough to leave alone and I'm thinking on painting the frame of the tank black. was pretty easy when I did my other 125g.

I'm sooo excited!!! In a few short months I will have my tangs finally!

Hey Glen, i couldn't find them in a 60" size. :-( Goes from 48" to 72". I was looking for a 60" a few weeks ago for a potential tank and had a tough time finding a good selection.

hmmm and its the bottom corner also, if it was the top i would say it should be fine but the bottom is iffy. maybe take it to a glass shop and see if they can repair it

as far as the brace, if it bugs you that much, you can always silicone a piece 1/4" acrylic across to brace it from bowing

Yeah, the placement of the glass break is horrible. Do you think if she's gonna blow that it will be a week? Or will the added weight from the rock and sand maybe do it? I'm really hoping it holds.

As far as the brace, where would I silicone? The brace itself is still there, just bows down a bit due to the melting. I didn't notice any bowing yet either. Theres still another brace 24 inches away. Its a 3 section top 125g.
