crack in my tank!!

Recommended Posts

hey everyone, im in a bit of a pickle as i have just discovered my 4 foot tank has a crack in the back piece of glass. about half way up from one corner to the top.. luckily the tank was emptied a few weeks ago because i went on holidays but i was just looking to set it up again when i discovered it whilst cleaning it. Is it possible to repair the glass, or would it be a better option to buy a second hand tank, maybe bigger because i was looking to start a tropheus colony.

Thanks for any help

How big is the crack? Some will just silicone a new piece of glass over the crack, either covering most/all of the panel, or a piece that runs the split or where ever the split could go.

This panel would then be the back of the tank.

Or you get the panel cut out, place a whole new panel in.

Depends on how much you value your time, cost of panel, how old the tank is etc.

If I was setting up a new colony & wanted to quickly, I would just by a bigger new tank. Fix up the old tank at a later date.

Frenchy :D
