It all started when we say an amazing 55 gallon with plants and fish for $60 on CL
. We wrnt ahead and DIYed a stand but the guy stopped answering our texts! So here we were with a 55 stand but no tank. We scoured CL
and came across a 60 gal
for $50.went to pick it up and as it turns out it was actually a 75 gallon! There were turtles in it previously who ripped up the seams pretty good and there were a lot of nicks in the outside corners. So thus far we had to widen the stand, reseal the inside, and do something eith the chipped corners. Widening thr stand was a breeze, we just exchanged the 12" pieces for 18" pieces. Resealing was tedious but easy. For covering the chips we used clea JB Weld since it doesn't come in contact with the inside of the aquarium. You can't even tell until you're super close that there were ever any chips. At the moment we are creating an internal canister filter and a glass canopy. Pictures to follow.
