is this an aquarium?

When we moved into our rental house I had found a ten gallon tank in the basement with this thing stacked on top of it, it had gravel in it and hard water stains. Is this an aquarium? I've never seen anything like this before

That's very odd. If it is, looks like there'll be a hard time seeing through it. Maybe try cleaning it with some vinegar to see if it'll clear up some? Is it glass or plastic?

to me it almost looks like one of those planters you would put glass rocks and flowers in

Its thick plastic, I tried cleaning it a little bit most of its scratches. Without the scratches you would be able to see through it

Well if it's that scratched I doubt it would make a very nice aquarium.

That's my logic to it!! Just add filter and heater and you just made a tank!

Well I've been reading up on how to get the scratches out guess I'll have to try that before I make any plans with it

Well Might have been used as a Sump (I highly Doubt for the 10 Gallon) for a larger tank, or a Temp Med Tank?
