After almost 4 years, my amazing tank (which I love) has cracked and is leaking...

I mean don’t get me wrong I love aquaria! I’ve consistently had either a freshwater brackish or salt water tank for the past 35 years and will continue to do so I could never give it up

it’s still disappointing none the less that I have to more basically start over. I mean most of the plants in that tank started off as bulbs and that’s prize-winning driftwood and I actually managed to get moss growing all over it and it looks amazing in addition to a lot of modifications to the trim to accommodate different lighting and custom fitting the UV sterilizer and CO2 fixtures.

think the modification to cleanly fit the arm mounts for the LED fixture is what cracked it The nylon lag bolts may have been a quarter turn too tight. but that seems to be the source of the crack and it goes all the way down to the bottom

oh well I am looking forward to my next endeavor going to keep an eye on the market space Fourm.
