corner strength question any help??

i have a 24 by 34 high by 6 foot long acrilic type tank. it was a freebie. it leaks a bit. i think i can reseal it ok. MY QUESTION IS THIS WILL THE SOLVENT HOLD AFTER BEING EMPTY ABOUT 10 YRS.? it has a solid top with holes. any help you can give me would be appreciated. looks to be 1/2 acrilic. if i cut it appart and remake the tank, on a scale of one to ten, how hard is it to reglue the tank up and is the glue part easy or difficult??
thanks wireyanker

As long as there is no dirt/dust in the cracked place, I'm sure the solvent will hold fine. It melts the acrylic back together and is very strong. JMHO.
