Tank issue?

I am tempted to get this tank, but what concerns me is the top where the center brace has separated from the frame.
Is this a non issue or should I let it pass?

Thanks.

It is an issue and will need to be repaired. You can by a new trim price for fairly cheap. If it's designed to have the center brace then it needs it.

Thanks Clayman.
Is that a simple DIY job for a beginner?
Once complete I should be able to sleep peacefully?

Yeah if you can get the new trim peice(the whole black peice that goes around the whole tank, center brace included.) it's just a matter of popping it off and silicone gel the new one in place. There are other ways to brace it but that's the best in my opinion. What size is the tank. It may be easy to find, it may not be.

Looks like a 47 gallon bow front.

Oh my goodness... dont touch this tank.

Look for another tank. Something cheap and still in good condition.

Don't give yourself headaches with this.
