15-20 gallon with a small crack for 2.99?

Should I go for it?

I wouldn't personally by an aquarium with any crack no matter the price. The money you save will evaporate pretty fast if that tank springs a leak and does damage to the stand, flooring, and stock!

Unless you are planning on replacing the cracked glass and resealing the tank -- but for me personally, that would be too much trouble.

The money saved isn't worth the risk in my opinion.

Best!

With the money I save I was planning on buying sealant. It's very small. It was only 3 dollars

That might work.

I have no experience repairing cracked tanks -- probably a big part of the reason I wouldn't personally risk it. Maybe others have a lot more experience and can guide you better than I can.

Good luck!
