New old tank


Recommended Posts

I just found this tank in my moms attic. It was the first tank I ever bought with my own money when I was 7-8 years old. It housed lots of fish over the years. It’s been in mom’s attic sense around 2005ish. Manufacturing date is November 20, 1989. It’s a 20 high. Will it hold water or leak? What’s your guess? My soon to be 7 year old is going to be using it for part of her mutt guppy breeding operation. She’s determined to make enough money to buy the setup for her dream fish, Amazon Puffers, then buy her fish. I’m excited to see this old thing back in action and proud of my kids entrepreneurial spirit.

It's recommended that tanks over 10 years should be resealed with silicone. But that's just a recommendation, I have a 15 yr old tank that still works. But with a tank that's 32 years old, id be a bit more skeptical. 

So it could potentially hold water, but the seals could fail any moment.
