And look at the tank and see if the flexing goes down or away when you remove some water..that might let you know too.

Ok I'll check and see what happens so you don't think the anchor would mean fish tank or just like a company logo? Maybe

Ya sadly you might have to use it half full or get a glass cutter take odd the top plastic frame cut the tank in half horizontally and them read here the plastic rim.. That's what I would do atleast or try it if I was stuck with the tank

Yea true so if I take about 1/4 of the water out and the flexing goes down does that mean it was a reptile tank I mean flexing is normal somewhat on a tank right do u think this is too much? Sorry for all the questions but i am new and just want to make sure I get it right
