Wow that sucks, sorry to hear that. You could buy a piece of glass and replace it. You'll have to re-seal the whole tank though. Good luck.

Before you add water make sure the tank is level sometimes a tank will split because it isn't level.

I always get them as level as possible drives me crazy if the aren't. So this new tank has a corner overflow with 2 one inch holes in the bottom what's the best way to plumb that I looked at this tank last time I was there and didn't get it because I was scared of a flood.

Its going to start out FOWLR but i will be going reef when i can afford proper lighting and get the hang of the hobby a little better but stock plans so far are 2 true percs kole eye tang sailfin goby with pistol shrimp and maybe a pakistani butterfly if i can find one at the lfs thats eating well and once my pod population is establish an green mandarin i think im going to do a 50 gallon sump/fuge with low flow so that should help with pods the new lfs i have been going to is amazing with crazy low prices so i could get creative he has discount 10$ corals and such so i will really be able to hook it up when i go reef i dont know if im allowed to link his sight but this is it he runs it in his basement Triad Reef Critters - ?*specializes in saltwater*aquarium*fish, coral and inverts.***We*have a*diverse line of saltwater fish, inverts, corals and dry goods, as well as*new and previously owned aquariums, pumps, heaters, skimmers, lighting, etc.*-We' Dexter the owner is a stand up guy and i suggest anyone in the triad area of north Carolina give him a visit
