TruView 100 gallon acrylic aquarium. Pre drilled for closed circuit filtration. A closed circuit filter system allows you to have a top of line filter system with no unsightly parts in the tank. It gives it the most natural look. Comes with a Delray model 125 wet dry filter sump and powerhead. Four piece in line closed circuit filtration system. This includes lifeguard mechanical filter, heater module, chemical filter and ocean clear filter designed for large tanks or ponds. It also includes under gravel screen mesh to put under your live sand and coral. This system as is will run you $4,000 retail for a new system.

All you need to do is buy the PVC and fittings to run your preference of plumbing. Also a exterior water pump for the closed circuit will run you about $250. A protein skimmer and UV sterilizer will cost about $200. Light ballast LED is around $70 on Amazon. And finally the stand you decide to put it on.

I enjoy buying these acrylic aquariums at garage sales or estate sales and restoring them. I don't make any money on them but it's just a fun little hobby to do.
I have another truview tank that is 60 gallons that's a split tank with tunnels. Has a custom molded rock background that the company builds for zoos and theme parks. The other tank I also bought used and did a complete restoration on it. Light wet sanding on any scratches and full thorough buff. All the seams and joints were resealed with weldon number 16 and water tested. By all new plumbing filtration and LED lights for it. I'm trying to at least break even on the other tank for 600 or 700. This 100 gallon tank I still need to do a buff job on it. It's already crystal clear though. Then I'm going to do a reseal on all the seams for peace of mind. I already bought new bulkhead fittings for the bottom of the tank to be plumbed. I'm still trying to design a custom stand for it to enclose the closed circuit filter system. Trying to dream up something real special for that. If if nobody buys it soon I'll probably have it fish ready in about 2 months 100% water tested assembled for a reef tank then disassembled and repacked for shipping. Let me know if you have any questions. This is such a fun hobby and I highly recommend you restore this tank yourself. It is the It is my favorite part if you have patience. Just laying in your bedroom staring at your fish tank is a great way to relax too and keeps your mind off the bad things.
