Mine's a year older than me, May 1994 it was made. Scraped out all of the old silicone, resealed, and it's good as new.

I am still using the first tank I ever built in about 1968. It is basically a cube of about 27 gallons. I also have a couple of 10s from the early sixties that still hold water.

When I lived in San Francisco I purchased a used 80-gallon glass tank with a metal frame that was manufactured in the 70s and was still in good shape. The tank went through the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989 with only a few chips in the glass, and did not spring any leaks. A well-made aquarium can last 50 years or more if it is properly taken care of and not damaged.
