question: ADA aquarium lifespan?

just curious for how long will the glue hold the aquarium together when the aquarium is not supported by the rims.
5 years? 10 years? 20? wondering when will be the good time to replace my ada tanks before something happens! lol

thanks!

As soon as you see the air bubbles show up on your silicone?

I am guessing 10 years or more.

I think depends quite a bit on which tank. The only ones I've heard of leaking were 120p's.

That was the only one I could remember, obscure and a long time ago before they switched to thicker glass.

Frank and Jeff have only had two claims I think in over ten years of selling ADA tanks.

How long is the warranty is a better question.

Well I don't see many popping up everywhere on this forum (and countless others) complaining so I think its safe to assume they last awhile, perception is reality after all

Warranty is 2-3 years if I recall.

Probably a long long time. There are normal tanks of lesser quality that I know of that have been set up full of water since the 90s/80s.
