I guess I need to make a few more observations:  The tank bottom (2' x 4') was
originally drilled with two 3/4" holes through the bottom.  The floor has 
spider-webbed from one of the holes, not just cracked.  A previous owner tried 
to fix it with two pieces of window glass and a piece or plexiglass on the 
bottom and just wound up making a mess.  I will need to remove the bottom and 
replace it to fix this tank.
