    Hi Guys,

    I am very new to the Marine fish world and looking to buy a tank very soon...I have done lots of research and need your help.

    The issue I have is that I have found a second hand 2foot cube Clearseal Tank which looks great, but the guy selling it has said there is a chip (see photos attached).

    Do you think the tank looks safe..also is that supposed to be that black around the glass?

    Would really appreciate your knowledge.

    Thanks in advance

    Ben

    I agree. It doesn't look that bad....but I would just buy a new tank if I were you. Unless there are extensive budgetary concerns a new tank is always better.

    Is it just me? But I don't see where the chip is? Can you tell me where?

    Biff, looks like the corner.

    And the black is black silicone, instead of clear.

    I think its in the bottom corner of the tank....it doesn't look like it extends to where the panes meet, though.
