Free tanks are sometimes the best for sure! I think as long as it doesn't have any leaks it would be good. As for a lid you can always get another screen for cheap. Some fish like to jump, or in my case, my cat would be dipping his toes in for a little snack. hahaBlackMolly99 said:I haven't filled it up with water yet. I'm still cleaning it out( there's a reason it was free lol).
It sort of has a lid. The screen was broken so I tore it off, but it still has the sliding part.
I've never really heard of a glass lid bowing per say, but I would just test it out and see what happens?BlackMolly99 said:I've heard that the glass is to thin, and it will bow eventually. Is this true? Or will I just have to test it out myself?
Ohh, hmm that I am not sure about. But could possibly be an issue since it's technically not made to hold water? I guess look at it closely while doing a leak test, I would fill it to the brim and let it sit for a few days and see what happens.BlackMolly99 said:Sorry, I meant the actual tank. Not the lid.
OK. Thank you, I'll try that I'm in Canada so we don't actually have the dollar per gallon sales! I wish we did!kattiq said:Ohh, hmm that I am not sure about.

If it doesn't work out, I do know that Petco/Petsmart do a $1 per gallon tank sale. And a 10g basic tank isn't all that expensive either anyways if you wanted to be on the safe side.
Awesome!! Hopefully it’ll continue to hold so you can get your aquarium started sooner rather than laterBlackMolly99 said:Ug sorry, I can't get a picture, because I'm using a desktop computer.
I've been cleaning it out, and I've done a bit of a test to see if it holds water, and so far so good
I also think Nataku is right, and the glass isn't thinner.
Sorry, reading my post I saw I wasn't very clear. I'm planning on using the 20g for fish ( after stores open up), and the 10g for something a bit more unusual.kattiq said:You could swap plans and use the 20g to house more fish instead of the 10g?
Can use the 10g and make a shrimp/invert only tank if you wanted.
