How old are your tanks?

I was looking at my 55 gallon today (empty) and I saw the manufacturer's sticker. It was made by All Glass Aquariums way back in 1985! No chips or anything. The tank is older than me!

How old are your tanks (in use or otherwise)?

HN1 and I have a 75 gallon that was made in 1984! It's still holding water after a 440 mile move last year in a U Haul with substrate in the bottom, lol, never been resealed to my knowledge. I think our next oldest is the 120 gallon we have, I think it was made in 1995.

I set mine up March of this year, but where do you see a date on the tank?

I saw the date on mine on the INSIDE of the frame, outside of the glass, on the bottom of the tank. It was a sticker that was placed on the frame, meant to be viewed from inside the tank, but only when it was empty, as anything on the bottom of the tank would cover it.

I was just surprised it was that old lol On a similar note, I just picked up a 20 gallon with stand and gravel and decor for 30 bucks today. :p

Wow, great deal! Did you get it off of CL? I keep seeing tanks on freecycle and I have been trying so hard to get another one because I can't afford another one yet.
