90g disassembly & salvage (photo heavy)

I sold some moss to someone locally and messaged them a few days later to see how they were doing. Turns out the tank they set up was like 10 years old and the back panel cracked right across the back panel when they filled it. So I came by just before garbage pickup day and he helped load it into my car.

I'm assuming the bottom panel is tempered so it can't be cut. The rest of the tank will be salvaged for panes to use in 2 DIY rimless tanks.

On with the photos:

10/16/2017 Picked it up, got it home, dumped it on the back deck.

10/21/2017 Full view of the damage.

Begin disassembly separate top plastic frame, remove frame.

10/28/2017 Removing the bottom frame.

10/29/2017 Slowly separating panes.

Don't ask for advice. Ask for information, gather lots of information from different reliable sources. Then use the information to make your own advice.
