Empty 20gal

So I have this 20 gallon tank... It sadly isn't water tight any more, but I would still like to use it... Does anyone know if and/or how I can fix it so it'll hold water or any ideas of something I can put in there that doesn't need water?

Google "resealing aquarium"..... tons of info out there, and vids on youtube on how to do it. It's not that hard, just a bit tedious to do correctly...... but a 20g is perfect practice size to learn how to do it.

Wouldn't do the snake... I would LOVE a lizard but my mom... Well, let's just say she wouldn't be a fan of the idea :P Dunno about a rodent... I'd like to do that too... Maybe hermit crabs would be cool... thanks for the ideas

My favorite thing about fish tanks is that you don't have to worry about touching/scooping poop. Just vacuum and change filter media.

Well good luck at resealing it! Remember to use nontoxic water proof sealant and to remove all sealant that you are replacing before you add the sealant.
