One side panel, it got a chip about half the glass deep that went up about 4 inches, plus it's not clean so it could easily turn into a crack. The problem is that everything overlaps it, the seams are armored so you can't see the silicone on the inside, and pulling the panel out is hugely labor intensive, along with risky. By the time a company does something like that, the labor costs get close to the cost of a new tank. Plus, since you have to get such a perfectly clean surface to bond the silicone properly, I don't trust just anyone to have a go at it. 300 gallons of water is allot of pressure.Which panel broke? I assume you looked into just replacing it.
Yeah, I know. I'm going to give someone an amazing deal on the best terrarium they have ever seen.What a waste.
Wow that’s a bummer.
I agree with all the other sentiments of THAT SUCKS Whiskey......BUT, .......'there he goes, the bright side of the cloud guy'.....When your NEW tank is all set up, and the soreness in your wallet begins to fade.....You my Friend have a brand spanking new tank with ZERO WORRIES! Your 'DREAM TANK'! But still......THAT SUCKS!
Yeah,.. it's super lame. Especially since the tank that broke was in such perfect shape. But! Nothing I can do about it now. I'll be doing some things different when the replacement arrives though, let me tell you.Man that is a kick in the gut. Sorry to hear Whiskey. The new tank founds fantastic though!
Yeah, I remember some things about GC way back in the day that were slightly less than amazing, I have to say that the build quality of this tank I picked up is impeccable though, and the customer service has been second to none. Looking at other tanks out there, I bet the strength of this thing would hold 600 gallons without bowing.. The armored seams are a nice touch too, that's a first for me. They put tiny triangles of glass in the corners so it's impossible to nick the sealant with a blade.Glass cages have come along ways since the early days of massed production. Joe had taken it to a new level. I here his customer service is great
Me either!!! This is what I have so far, I approved this and so the build is starting!Can’t wait to see the new tank
