Big tank + undersized cabinet = full stop

Living life on the edge …

This eBay listing is cringe-worthy.  The sight of an unevenly supported and elevated glass bottom for a tank of this dimension (72 L x 18.5 W x 27 H inches) sends shivers down my spine.  One end of the aquarium overhangs the edge of the cabinet by several inches and is wrapped with what appears to be a foam bumper to prevent children from injuring themselves when bumping into the exposed bottom corners.

Yikes!  I’m almost tempted to buy this aquarium for the safety of the tank owner and his family.
