Where to buy replacement tank frames
Hello all hoping you can point me in the right direction. I have an old 100 gallon tank 72x18 that popped a side seal. I believe it did this because the frame is busted and the middle supports are broken. The tank is old I bought it used about 20 years ago. I am looking for a replacement frame. I found one on the web along time ago but never bought it. I cant find the link now and was wondering if anyone has any ideas where to look. Thank you.

If it's just the brace part that is broken, there are ways of creating a replacement brace. Can take a piece of glass, the width of the tank, and silicone it in place where the original brace was. Or if there is still part of the old brace left, you can cut out a piece of thick acrylic and glue it under the original brace. I had a broken 55g brace which I was able to fix this way, after using an epoxy to join the new brace to the old, I drilled holes into the braces and joined them together with nylon bolts. Just remember to put a temporary clamp on the tank, till the epoxy has had time to set.
