What would you do with an empty, leaky ten gallon tank?


Recommended Posts

Back in March, my ten gallon tank developed a slow leak, so I hastily bought a new one and recreated it. I cleaned out the old one and all has been well since.

But now I have the old, leaky ten gallon tank. I know I can remove the old silicone and reseal the tank, but I don't really want to do that. For one thing, I don't have any place for another tank of any size. For another, lazy and wasteful though it sounds, if I did need or want another 10 gallon, I could just buy one for $10-20, so resealing such a small tank doesn't really seem worth it.

So I guess it's just destined for the recycling bin, but before it goes, I wanted to see if any of the clever, creative folks here have any good ideas about what I can do with it.

Test the true carrying capacity of the bottom glass. Supposedly 15 to 20 lbs per gallon. We had a discussion here about this a couple of months ago. I almost had a “hold my beer moment” and crawled in. Not saying this is a constructive idea at all. But… how many moments do you actually have that like this?


eh, for free at a fish club would probably be best
