I have a 30-ish gallon tank with a pretty significant crack running completely across the bottom-centre of the tank. I was thinking that I could patch it with plexiglass (3/8" at least) and just lay the patch over top of the existing pane of glass.
I don't know, however, if this is even a little bit clever.
I have only ever undertaken repairing minor seam leaks and "near the surface" cracks before. Never anything that would be bearing the full weight of the 300+ pounds of water in the tank.
Any advice and/or insight would be great. There are lots of resources that outline the process - I think I have that down - but there's no one who says, "hey, don't do this..." that is specific to my situation.
Thanks to anyone with insight or advice.
