    500 Gallon glass aquarium with stand and canopy. Includes:
    - 2' x 4' 85 gallon sump
    - two 1100 gph hi-pressure coralife pumps
    - four ocean clear canister filters
    - UV Sterilizer
    Aquarium is 9' long, 3' tall, and 30" from front toback
    Stand is 9' 4.5" x 33" tall x 32.5" fromfront to back
    Please contact Kell at 702-673-7606.

    I am offering this tank for a low price of $3800 because it has had some minor repairs on the glass. It is currently in my garage filled with water for anyone who would like to see it. Serious inquiries only please. The repairs are out of sight and not visible when the tank is set up. Please contact me at the number above or at khichuotviet@cox.net or PM me.

    I will post some pics so you can see. On the front of the glass at the very top was a slight chip taken out of the glass. It has been filled with epoxy and is completely covered by the canopy so it is out of sight. The chip did not penetrate through the glass. It's just a surface chip.

    On the back of the tank at the bottom a clamshell fracture is present. This sounds worse than it is and makes for a tough sell but this is why I am selling at a reduced price. As the photos show, and for anyone who would like to see locally, the tank is currently in my garage filled with all 500 gallons. The clamshell fracture is about an inch and a half wide on the front pane at the base of the glass. It is not a crack, but a fracture. I called the tank manufacturer and other glass repair shops and followed their instructions on repairing the glass. Here are the photos of the fracture before the repair.

    As you can see, the fracture was no taller than the bottom pane, being 3/4" thick. To repair I removed the silicone along the entire base of the inside of the tank. I did not remove the panes or the silicone between the glass. I laid down a 6x6" piece of glass flat on the inside of the tank up against the inside of the front pane and re-siliconed the entire bottom of the tank. This piece of glass can be entirely covered by sand or gravel w/o a problem. I then siliconed another peice of glass to the outside of the fracture, flat against the existing glass. The photos are difficult to see due to reflection:

    Here is the picture of the entire tank (note it is not currently on the stand. I have a seperate stand and canopy).

    Here is a photo of the stand and sump. A canopy is included but not in photo.

    The tank is currently filled with water in my garage. Anyone interested can text or email me and I can schedule a time to let them see the tank.

    The tank is 3/4" glass. Buying a glass tank this size brand new is $8,000 to $10,000 just for the glass. I am including over a $1000 worth of equipment as well. I lowered my asking price because of the repairs, but the tank holds water no problem. All of the repairs are easily covered when placed on the stand and canopy. As I said, anyone interested can look at it with water in it. I hate to sell the dang thing but my wife is ready to kill me over it. I just don't have the money to maintain a tank that size at this time. Someday, when (if) I have money I will custom build a 4000 gallon tank and fill it with Arapaima and RTCs!

    So........There were a few people who replied to my post and the above comment was a response to one of them....not sure why the comments were deleted or who deleted them. That is odd... I am a regular on Monsterfishkeepers.com (user name: Tien) but new to this site. I am willing sell the tank and equipment separately if anyone is interested in just the tank.

    NEW PRICE! $2500 for tank, stand, canopy, sump, and Canisters only. I have sold the UV light and may keep the pumps for my other tanks unless someone really wants to buy them as well.
