It is possible to replace, but you'll have to take apart and rebuild the entire thing. It's less expensive just to buy a new one.

Maybe list this one on craigslist for people looking for a project.

10 gallon isn't worth fixing. Just buy a new one. Only like 20-30$

They aren't much more expensive, and you can do a lot more with them.

If you check Craigslist sometimes people are giving away tanks.
