The oak stand has a sticker, "All Glass Aquariums".
Just examined the tank again, no center bracing of any kind.
No remnants etc. of silcone and such.
Trim is 4 mitered pieces, noticed this at first glance last week.
It is a very stout heavy tank, great for free.
HCl = 38% hydrochloric acid, vinegar will never touch this.
Same as for washing brick and such, must be diluted though.
I am prepared with gloves and for the stink.
I am repairing the rotted stand, nice oak appearance for sure.
No cost involved, I have lumber, plywood and veneer in house.
Only a little time, okay a lot of time needed.
Complete stand dis-assembly pretty much. Lots of mold and stink.
Tank was holding water 1 week before acquired.
Leaking must be related to filtration equipment in the cabinet.
Left side was the lowest and took the heat in rot.
Oak lumber just needed cleaning, plywood rotted and de-laminated.
It will be a low tech tank. Thinking of crypts in the front half.
Tall stems and water sprite in the back half.
Fish, shrimp, snails? I have no idea at this time.
Suggestions surely accepted.
I would like a dozen nerites of various patterns etc.
Already have RCS in 3 tanks and a over-population of purple Moscow guppies.
Maybe a haven for black mollies or platty.
