It is a very old AHEIM AQUARIUM (120X40X50).

It is made with 8mm glass.


I talked with several Aquarium makers and they told me that for those measurements i need a 10mm glass.

I geuss when Aheim specialist make them it is ok to use 8mm but for my capabilities......

Give it a try! Really would be a shame to throw a nice looking tank like that out just because of a small leak.

Strip it out, reseal, and make a paludarium. It's thick enough to fill 1/2 full!

reason why it's only 8mm is because of the trim that is supposed to be on top to reinforce the tank..

or at least that is with JUWEL tanks the case

I might be dutch but I don't have a dutch scape.
