  3. JonWell Known MemberMember

    why cant anything good ever happen in colorado ; (... im in the market for a 125 but im lookin acrylic neway..
  4. EmpPlecoWell Known MemberMember

    it looks so bad though :(
  5. JonWell Known MemberMember

    well what do you expect its 99 cents... lol

    its not that bad just need some silicone some razor blades and some know how. for 99 cents its definately a good deal lol
  6. EmpPlecoWell Known MemberMember

    I still wouldn't buy it for 99 cents. Seems like more work than its worth
  7. JonWell Known MemberMember

    lol well... one man's trash is another man's treasure... not to call you a man but thats how the expression goes...

    id be more than willing to buy it if i lived close to him... worst comes to worse you take out the glass and use it for a different purpose.

    125 gallon turtle tank? I must say, if I could go pick it up, I'd definitely get it. Wouldn't need to hold much weight so a patch would work well >:)
  9. JonWell Known MemberMember

    the glass is thick enough for fish... just need to patch it up and give it a lil TLC

    yeah if i had somewhere to put a 125 gallon (and the money to set it all up--right now I wouldnt be able to afford the gravel, all the plants, filter, huge heater, etc...not to mention the fish) I'd buy it...its not that hard to fix a crack

    lol when i look at the expense of setting up freshwater tanks after getting into salt it all seems so laughable... no live rock or corals or $1200 lights...

    freshwater tanks seems so cheap now

    you haven't started your salt water tank have you b/c if you haven't you could still get a huge tropical tank
  13. JonWell Known MemberMember

    not yet but im definately starting a saltwater... i love the corals and the bright neon fish... you just dont get the variety with tropicals imo... i like tropicals but i really love saltwater. Im just about to start buying the stuff my dad and i are starting to build the stand and i am going to buy the tank off ebay within the week.

    You can't "Patch" a big crack like that. You'd need to replace the entire one side with new glass most likly - which still may be worth the effort. ;)
  15. 0morrokhFishlore VIPMember

    Probably true, Maida_gc, but it would cost a lot less than buying a new 125. Heck, I'd take the thing if I could...oh well, 10's are good enough for now. ;)
  16. JonWell Known MemberMember

    lol of course you cant patch a crack like that what was i thinking, for some reason i thought it meant there was a leak in the corner... not a crack in the glass

    but your right of course
