Good seal?

Buying used again and trying my luck. Here are the pictures they sent.

I dunno if i'm going to get it because of the fact that the sides are done with black silicone and the bottom with clear...Hmm makes me wonder. I'll likely buy a 32G kit and use 2 filters with my 32G and sell off the other heater.

It may just be that one part had to be resealed. See if it holds water, I mean once you put gravel in you won't noticed the different color.

Mehh i dunno i believe we talked on chat so you know my luck with used tanks. I think i'm better off buying a kit. I'll have dual filtration anyway! I just want some opinions before hand.

Exactly i'd rather spend a few extra bucks and be certain that the sealing is good and was laid down by a professional.

I don't blame you, I would only go use if I got an insanely good deal and the tank was in good shape

Not only that i don't have my license yet so i can't go see the tank first. When they bring it to me and i see that they lied or didn't know about the seals i feel bad telling them i won't buy especially if they live far.
