Smile 4 ft tank for free :)

a couple of days ago i asked the pet store if he was able to order in a 4 ft tank for me to start a maingano setup , or perhaps one oscar. he had one sitting the the back that supposedly had a slight leak but he hadn't checked it. so he gave it to me.

got home and filled up, yes it did have a slight leak. so next day i went and got some special non toxic silicon for aquariums and cut all the old silicon away in the leaking joint ( cleaned it up real nice) and did a pretty good job.

in 4 days i can test it. and if it works i got myself a nice 4 ft tank.

So it's just a piece of glass? Haha kidding...kidding.

Technically, it couldn't even be a piece of glass without a width...

Just saying...

Kidding, again.

Free stuff is always, always awesome!

free stuff helps keep the costs down.
of course if you keep getting free tanks then you have to buy more stuff for them so maybe it doesnt.
nice find
