Tank Size Problem HELP PLEASE

Recommended Posts

I decided to upsize my 2ft to a 3ft & bought one secondhand from a QLDAF member & was told it was 3ft.

The cabinet I have to use is exactly 90cm long. Well it turns out the tank is 100cm long.:frusty:

My question is will the tank crack if it has an over hang of 5cms at each end?

If so does anyone have a decent looking 90cm tank they would like to swap for a 100cm one???:boom:

Cheers Lisa

You could buy a piece of strong flat timber 1000mm long & ...mm wide. Paint it in a marine proof or water proof paint & it'll hold the edges. I don't think a 3 (& a bit >x<) foot tank has enough volume & therefore enough mass & pressure to worry bout 50mm overhang each side popping the seal or breaking the tank but if it was me I'd get a piece of 12 or 15mm thick marine ply on the cheaper side or a good flat hardwood plank or 2 on the more expensive side...
