So the glass cracking was from an old FW
build so it wasn't that I was dropping in LR
/Sand. I'm putting this thread here in the salt section because I want a salt tank lol. I'm wondering if maybe just whatever the glass tank was sitting on wasn't level, since like I said I remember that it cracked during the night after being filled and having rocks and stuff put in that day. So in hindsight/better knowledge I'm thinking defect or not level rofl. I really wish I could remember what I put it on though, but this was a few years ago...
Anyways, thanks for the advice all... I still need to convince the SO about glass but I'm sold. Especially given the cost (I can literally buy a NEW stand and glass tank for the same cost as an acrylic tank only) and that I'm sure for a first timer to salt the money would be much better spent in other aspects like a skimmer and maybe sump/ Refugium. Or nice LED
lighting lol. Ok, maybe those aren't technically "in the tnak", but they would be "upgrades" I could more easily afford with the savings. Plus if glass does last longer than that means buying a used stand/tank for cheap on like CL
may be a good idea. I mean 150 for a 50gal tank with hood/lights (even if I do replace them) and a stand I could put a sump in isn't a bad deal I'd think.
Edit: WHOA! Talk about what going a few pages back on CL may do... I just found a posting for a 112 gal with custom wood stand for 200 bucks! HOWEVER, they say it's a "plexiglass" tank and so now I'm wondering is there really any difference between plexi and acrylic when it comes to tanks and how can you tell the difference between the two... I mean if it's just someone who doesn't know plexi is different from acrylic and it's really acrylic that may be a STEAL.
Edit2: Just did some quick reading and it seems Plexi is just another term for cell cast acrylic... which is what you want in tanks right? AND it already has a refugium tank under it?! Holy moly I hope someone says some good news about plexi... I definitely want to do things right but man if I can find a place for that (which I already have in mind) talk about a deal.
