Tank Repair in Portland/Vancouver area?

So i have a glass 150 gallon tall and recently the bottom of the tank was cracked during a move. I was wondering if anyone knew of a shop around the Portland Vancouver area that could fix or repair fix it. And if not would it be advisable to fix it my self or look into a new tank. Thank you for any and all input

Not sure about repairing but the petco dollar/gallon sale might save you a lot of hassle down the road.

I have a Craigslist find in my garage but ended up going the petco route. Better safe than sorry till I can reseal the CL find.

Buy some silicon and put it over the crack. Then take a piece of glass/acrylic big enough to cover the crack and place it over the crack, and silicon the edges of that to the bottom of the tank the same way you silicon the edges of a tank.

Or buy a new tank, I'd suggest buying a new tank if you can, but I've seen several tanks patched like I was saying above.
