You’re gonna love this. It’s not mine mods so let’s run with it eh?
Remember the huge weird two part hexagonal office reception type tank I wanted one of you lot to buy last summer? Well here’s the follow up:
Its a 150ish year old Victorian era fancy tank that’s seen better days….better centuries tbh.
I didn’t want to put a link on here as the mods disapprove. So just search for “ Victorian parlour antique aquarium” in eBay. It’s in the U.K. so you may have to factor that into your search. There’s only a couple of hours to go so hurry up and get your bids in.

Links to eBay are fine, unless it's your shop site and you are trying to drum up business (see Rules about commercial sites and sales)

It's links to other general fish keeping forums which are not allowed. Links to specialist fish sites with more in depth knowledge than on here are fine, it's competition which isn't.

why would anyone buy that? you could make an actually functional replica for half that much.
"if the buyer restores it to its former glory..." it's not a piece of history if you replace every detail.

It's more like $4100 if you convert euros to dollars
