lol well... one man's trash is another man's treasure... not to call you a man but that's 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 >

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

not yet but I'm definitely starting a saltwater... I love the corals and the bright neon fish... you just don't get the variety with tropicals imo... I like tropicals but I really love saltwater. I'm 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.

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.

lol of course you can't 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
