He is willing to replace the pane, but I'm not sure i trust that. If that sucker comes off, that's a lot of water. There are a couple 240s on Craigslist right now, but $500-$600 and two hours away.

I agree with you on not having him fix it. Maybe as an option having him pay for another company to replace that pane. A company with a warranty and insurance.

I was talking to a guy at one LFS and he said that repairs usually don't come with warranty and that is when the company does the repair. I'm going to ask around more tomorrow.

This is beyond frustrating. Had the darn thing cycled and was getting ready to order fish to pick up in a couple weeks. Now it is back to square one...

I would look at the other 240's, even if far away. A repaired pane that long would make me nervous forever and thats no way to enjoy the hobby. The question is of course whether its in your budget or not. Do you have any really experienced repair places that specialize in aquariums?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I doubt there are repair places in my area, but I am out by Palm Springs, so there is not much locally. The good is that I'm betting that there is someplace in Los Angeles or Orange County. I'm just thinking that by the time we get the tank out there ( over an hour away), it would probably be less to get a used one. Someone has one for $600 on CL with a center overflow, black back like mine. I'm trying to get them down to $500 and am hoping this guy will pay for that. Figure it might be affordable for him and his cost on the glass alone has got to be half that.

Thanks to everyone that feels my pain. I'm trying to stay positive, but it's tough...

Well, the good news of the day is that the guy that broke the tank just came by and paid me. It is good to know that there are still honest people out there.

There is a 240g about 2 hours away (in Santa Ana for the locals) that I am hoping to go look at tomorrow. Black back, center overflow, same dimensions. Maybe this will all work out okay...

Good luck! Glad you got some cash in hand for your trouble. Fingers crossed that the tank over there will be "the one". lol
