Wow, that sucks! At least you got paid.

Good luck with the new tank! Keep us posted!

It will break even for the new tank I am looking at, but I will be having to rent a U- Haul, so it will cost me money. I just did not want to push this guy too much. He is young and starting his own business, so I tried to be fair.

I'm hoping to start a "Round Two" thread soon...

if you want to do a repair it's really not too difficult, you just have to take off the front pane and put a new one on.

I can tell you how to do it if you want, I'd even ship you the proper sealant if you can't find any.

Thanks Audi, but I think I am just going to grab a used tank. I've heard from a couple places that for larger tanks, it is not wise to just change out one panel, but to redo the whole thing, so that it is all the same. I think if I did it, I would never sleep well. I've got one that I am going to look at this Saturday. Hopefully it works out, as seeing the empty and cracked tank is depressing.

I ended up getting the 240g today. I will get pictures up tomorrow, but it is a LeeMar custom with euro-bracing, beveled edges, two outlets up top and two down lower with a center overflow.

Now for the fun part, which I got pictures of. Bet nobody has loaded a tank like this...

This tank was on a metal stand. We got it right up to the the tailgate of my brother-in-laws truck and we lifted it slightly using his shop lift. I backed up, pushing the stand with the tailgate (in case one of the straps broke, the tank would either hit the stand or the bed). It worked like a charm...effortless, unless you count mental stress, which was insanely high. Yes, that is a classic '50-something MG up on the top of the shop lift.

Hoping to get this in the house tomorrow...

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

Hope all goes well for you this time!
