    My 80 gallon tank got a big crack when I was moving and now I have to put my 2 oscars and ropefish in a divided 60 gallon tank with my convicts. I had the idea of putting them in such a small tank, but I have to until I can find a new tank for them! It is really retarded though, my tank was just fine until a poured water in it then a just heard a weird crack noise. Oh well!

    That stinks. Try getting a couple big rubbermaid storage bins and set up your filters on those. It won't be pretty, but it's better than having all those fish crammed in a small tank.

    Do you plan on getting another 80 or upgrade to an even bigger tank? That might be a good idea. But yeah, that does stink.

    Yeah, thanks for all your replys. I already have a giant rubbermaid container to possibly put either an oscar, ropefish or both and yeah, I plan on getting either a 75 gallon or another 80 gallon tank, but I wonder how much that is going to cost? :|

    Around here (Wisconsin) a black trim 75 gallon tank costs $126.57

    Hi unknown, Sorry to hear about your tank. That really does "STINK". You can try getting another piece of glass the same thickness and reseal it. Another way of doing it which is not quite as pretty but works fairly well, is to get a piece cut just smaller than the one that broke but large enough to cover the broken piece and silicone it to the broken piece and around the edges inside the aquarium. It has to be placed on the inside and not patched on the outside.

    thats why acrylic is better in some ways, because it wont leak around edges like glass might.

    I dunno quit yet, it really depends on how much they cost. If I can get 2 50 gallons for my 2 Oscars and like a 30 for my ropefish then that is probaly fine. But, if somewhere, somehow I can find an 80 gallon tank thats not really expensive then I guess its better than have 3 separate tanks! Thanks for your post!

    That is a good idea, but I'm still a bit worried about the water pressure and also I'm not good with tools and that kind of stuff, so I would have to probaly leave that to my father. Thanks for the great idea!

    I went to a bunch of stores today and i looked at the prices, it is $150 for a 50 gal and $250 for a 150 gal. they didnt seem to have a 80 gal there but $150 for a 50 is still alot so im guessing the cost is quite high for those. I think the 50 was the plastic glass (i cant think of the name for it)
