Well I thought I couldn't fit another tank in the house and I managed to get a 125 in the Kitchen My Gf got MTS 265353 . We just got a new 75 a week ago and stocked it with are new additions (they get big). Upgrades were discussed before purchasing the fish and so far so good. The next 6 footer wasn't supposed to come until we moved but she found an awesome deal on CL. The tank was a salt tank as was still dirty when we got it. I didn't have a miter saw to build another stand (I borrow tools). So instead of waiting She bought the wood,screws and Brand new compound miter saw(with laser) because of MTS. Enough Blabber here are the pics.

Dirty Tank!

awesome. but with newly deserved paranoia of buying used tanks. do have have a method to re-inforce the corners at the top and bottom of the tank? i hear some folks scrape the old corner seals and put a new bead of sealant.

I have filled it and cleaned it pretty well. I plan on resealing all the tanks by November before or during our two month move (fish tanks ). I have reasealed a 75,55,29,and a ton of 20 longs. GE silicone I is the stuff I choose.

You make it look so effortless! Great job - I love a room-divider tank. You'll really enjoy it and I can't wait to see it filled and stocked. good
