Recently i reseeled an old 29 gal that has a slate bottom and stainless steel framing. it is from the 60's or 70's and it took me about 2 hours to chip out the old seelannt, i believe it was called asphaltum. it is a great looking tank and hoping to make it a centerpeice tank with some cichlids!

In 1-2 years I'm making a DIY 270 gallon aquarium that will cost about $500!
