Re: Tank lifespans
My oldest tank is a painted metal framed, slate bottomed, Metaframe
Angelfish Breeder, with stand. It needs resealing (not the first time)
so is not on display. Perhaps over 50?
My next oldest tank is a 50 gallon Chicago Jewel, chromed angle steel
frame and stand, 1" slate base with internal white glass cover over the
slate, 1/2" polished plate glass, beveled corners (to minimize putty,
early salt tank). Never been out of use, but dug out accessible putty
and siliconed >20 years ago. Matching stand. ~1956-58
Next oldest, one of the early Metaframe all glass tanks from the brief
period between their introduction and the company's demise. Don't
remember the date, never resealed.
