Judging by the black trim all around, I believe it is an Aqueon 26g bow front. Petsmart sells them. You could cruise one and see if they look the same. OS.

I have a used tank as well, and it too has chip in glass! I did 24 hr leak test and it passed. I check it daily lol cause I'm so paranoid. Here are pics, and so far so good! Some guy had a huge crack in his and posted his pic on one of y threads (the one about upgrading) and wow. If that thing can handle it my lil crack could lol.

Also your tank definitely looks like a fish tank to me! And anything under 20 for a now front is cheap to me! I hope you snagged it for 10! It would almost be a robbery. Look at the now front kits, after a lid, lights, heater and filter- you will come out cheaper but with better quality things! And customized. Well cheaper depends lol but you get what I mean! Bigger filter and better lights than a kit.

Also that cleaning stuff seems amazing! I wish I knew about that. I just used hot water and a knife (too paranoid for vinegar or bleach!).

What I did was dampen the inside if the tank sprinkled baking soda all over the inside and then poured viniger in . Soaked cleaning tshirt scraps in viniger and scrubbed away! Seems to be working alright so far ! Have the tank in my shower filling up and over flowing hopefully it doesn't just burst out the bottom because its not in there 100% flat .

Be very careful using hot water to clean a tank. Any minor cracks or chip can become very major. Trust me, I learned first hand. I would be way more paranoid about hot water than bleach or vinegar!!!
