I want to buy this acrylic tank and it is a half circle. It is 44'' tall, 72"' feet wide, 38'' deep 44'' tall. When I look at this tank. What should I be looking at to make sure it was hold water down the road?
I do know maintenance will be a pain but just dont want to get a tank that will not hold water down the road.My tank right now is acrylic 225g and been holding water for about 10 years now

Make sure the acrylic has no crazing, it looks like spider webs I would say in the acrylic that's the only way I can describe it. Pay careful attention to that on the seams.

Like mentioned above, check for crazing. Also check for bubbles in the glue joints, a few are fine but several in a small area can be bad. Looks like it is built pretty decent though.

Checked out the tank and didn't like it. There was some much extra acrylic on that tank. It's was like someone was trying to used the acrylic like band aids to keep everything together. The acrylic was only like a inch think which I was worried about too for being that tall.
