Repairing Cracked Acrylic???

  1. Is it possible to repair a cracked tank? Doesn't need to be pretty, I want to use it for a sump/refugium on my 29gallon.

    i would think adrian and colin would be able to help you seeing as they were able to fix mike's calcium reactor..
     
  3. looks like this one is beyond repair (pretty or not) to safely hold water inside a house.

    I would suggest building a new one. Its easy and cheap.

    Get some 1/4" acrylic and weld on #4.

    Look at the vendor page. A few places in baton rouge will cut it to the exact sizes you need to put it together and will even give you some freindly advice if you need it.
     
  4. you could try putting acrylic in and around the crack. walmart has it near the fish stuff (at least they do in denham) and they have it at some pet stores
