[APD] Re: REpairing an old (metaframe) tank.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the tank is toasted. You'll
have to get a new one.
Metal framed tanks are notoriously difficult (read: impossible) to repair.
Especially fi the metal has started to rust. You can try, but I think
you'll be doing this again in a few months. THe slate bottom usually
won't adhere well. You can replace it with glass, but finding a peice to
fit can prove difficult. THe metal frame makes gluing problematic, and
will need a heavy cleaning before you can glue to it.
I'd relaly just buy another tnak.... Like you, I love hte old metal
framed tanks, and have had a few leak on me. Always, the same thing.
