Need some input on my 55 and stand
So I got this tank at a yard sale for $25 with the stand. For that price, I couldn't pass it up.
The tank holds water. (filled it and let it sit in the garage for 48 hours) But it's got issues with the top rim and brace. The brace is cracked, but not all the way through, and one side of the rim was melted by a heat lamp. (Guy that sold it to me had a reptile in it.
The issue with the stand is it's missing a piece on the bottom of one of the sides. I don't know if that should be replaced or if it would be fine without it. The stand has some damage to it in general. It looks as if someone had a saltwater setup in the tank, and they had some insane salt creep, or a pretty bad leak in the stand. There were salt deposits all over on the bottom, and some water damage. The stand seems sturdy, but I can't decide if I want to risk it, or just build a new one.
