Why would you drain the tank to repair the crack ? If it's only cosmetic I would leave it .

It's not cosmetic it exposed the styrofoam which can leak toxins.

I love tank tinkering but when you have been working on something for months you just want it to be done and stuff like this happens it's maddening.

Wow, never would of thought it would look this good! I bet it even looks better in person. I'm glad you took the time to fix the crack... Must have been a pain in the butt considering you worked on it forever it seems. Anyways, awesome piece of craftsmanship and I'm excited to see how this looks fully submerged.

Thank you, I'll refill it tonight after work and take pictures after it clears up.
