So I was doing some work at a customers house yesterday, and he also had a love for aquariums and had this laying around and gave it to me for free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its 75 gallons. Does it leak? I don't know. Will it crack and destroy my floor? I don't know. I will have to leak test it and resilicone it to be safe.

I suspect that it's a 60 gallon. I have one in storage that looks exactly like that with the black silicone and all. Petsmart sells it in combo with a black modern stand. It's not a common sized tank, very long and thin. Pretty neat I liked how well it fit against the wall in my apartment. It's a tricky one to create any depth in thats for sure.

It has a stamp on it that says 75 gallon I haven't filled it so I don't know for sure. As far as the black silicone the previous owner definitely did that after he got it, because it has clear silicone under it. And I'm not sure manufacturers would do that. I hope he didn't do that because it leaked on him!

Yeah! Looks like my 60 gallon. I just got vertical growing plants and it looks very nice :)
What kind of light do you have? I've never had a tank this tall.

The first thing that I saw was the motorcycle. But a nice score anyway.

Sixty, seventy-five gallon, does it really matter? It's free!!!

Do check to make sure it doesn't leak before you fill it up inside your house.

I have improperly stored tanks before and they all cracked or were otherwise compromised. It is incredible how much damage 60 or 75 gallons of water would do to your house.
