"never used" hmm looks really scratched to me. and thats the big acrylic tank problem. they scratch soooo easily. and it will get to the point that viewing i extremely hard.

but i agree good for someone, if nothing else it would make a nice humidity tent/ tank for cloning and propagation

To be honest, I would never pay that much for that tank...mostly because the materials aren't worth anywhere close to that, and it doesn't really take an astonishing amount of work to make something like that. I don't know...maybe it's just me.

Yeah I saw that posted a while ago, one of the main pains in the @$$ would be trying to make some type of lid for it

actully thats not a bad price if was ment for fish. it made of 3/4 acylic which is expeseive. you can make one for less then a fraction of that price as you would use 1/4 acylic. you also can buff out the scatchs to.

If it is in good condition that is a really good price. I paid $1400 for my 270g acrylic reef tank and sold it 4 years later for $1000. I initially wanted to use it for my dart frog enclosure but once emptied all the hair sized swirly scratches are super visable(they are invisible when full of water). Like someone said it made it hard to look through. I have since changed out all my acrylic tanks to glass.

Looks like salt on the glass, but never used I would hardly beleive. As for scratches in acrylic, they make buffing compounds for that. I'm sure that they set this thing up and realized that 3/4" is not thick eough for a "braceless" fish tank.

My viv is an acrylic tank that I converted to a viv. There isn't a scratch in it, but I don't have any kids.

Honestly I think you could make one out of 1/4" glass for about the same or less than that guy is charging and put some doors on the front.

yea really didn't think much into that you would probly need somewhere around 2" or more for brassless as it is 3' it look as it wasn't full of water just about 8" hich i belive 3/4 be fine. i don't see salt or scatchs more of just a hard water stained from where the water was so deff not new.
