Such a great deal im very happy for you to find such a steal,
two days ago I found a 40Gallon with stand lid lights, & an air pump the person was only asking 10$$!!!
I told my Wife I was going to go pick it up She said no more tanks I said I wont set it up it will be when I get my Fish room...
SO JEALOUS!!!! Great steal if its real wood and you can sand it down and restain it AWESOME!!
even if it leaked, Some GE 1 Silicone 6$ at ACE a couple hrs to scrape old silicone and put new silicone and few days cure, and boom sweet 75 gallon tank!!!!!
I have a 25-30 gallon long TRU VU Acrylic tank and the back bows about an inch, I thought hmm doesnt look good but I haven't worried about it and nothing has happened (KNOCK ON WOOD) So I just thought this was normal I hope other people have input on this also.
Good luck with you BP'S, my bp seems to only be able to get a good bite of food when I hand feed him he seems to have trouble if I just drop the food in there,
Best of luck remember just hang in there and keep trying they'll come around sooner or later
