Default buying me a new tank:):):)

alrighty,i have broke down and decided to go bigger! i just got back from looking at a 135 gallon tank, and i think im gonna get it.. i just want yall opinion on it.
its a new/ used tank.. i am buying it from a person, that bought it new, but they never used it.he said he put water in it and it didnt leak , but i dont think he left the water in it very long. only thing wrong it is has a small chip in the corner..

here is a link to pictures of it.just copy and paste.

http://www.selas.us/portal/modules.p...iewtopic&t=570

if this doesnt work let me know and ill redo it.

the chip is in the top corner and is in the outside of the tank. it isnt effecting the silicone at all.
will this effect the tank? i dont want pressure to cause it to bust.

should i pass on this or buy my new project???

The link didn't work for me...but be very careful. If there is any stress on that chip, the whole thing could let go! 135 gallons of water on the floor would not be fun!!!

thanks.. i really value all yall opinions

go to selas.us
once there go to forums( its on the left side of the page)
once there scroll down to classifieds, click it
the the post is titled scratch and dent 135 gallon tank.

i know its a lot to get to , but i really want your opinions before i buy this thing..135 gallons on the floor would not be a good thing..and a waste of 150.00 wouldnt help me winning keith over to the fishy side

I have had tanks with chips knocked out of the edges that never failed, but I was always nervous about them.

Cracks radiating out from or in the chipped area would be a bad thing!
