New to the forum

Hi everyone my name is Steve and I'm starting a new tank set up. Picked up a 150 gallon tank for trade of a old mini fridge we didn't use. It's a big tank should be fun however the bad news is I had it in the garage cleaning it up and checking for leaks and sure enough it has a leak in one of the corners. So figuring out what I'm gonna do with it is on the back burner till I rebuild it.

Found cracks in the bottom frame tonight while cleaning and scraping silicon out of it. So I'm gonna order a new frame for it top and bottom. This is a older tank with one cross brace in it I see the new models have two braces on them. Guess the project is on hold until I get these parts in.
