    What!!!
    You didn't grab it?
    No tank is ever too big.
    Just gonna dream a bit... remove the interior overflow boxes, cap the holes and drill the back for external fancy overflow boxes. Stand has a full front opening so that's a plus; large plexi tank needs baffles and flange trimmed, piece of cake...
    Man if I didn't have so much stuff in the basement, that tank would've been there already, I mean just to pass it to someone...

    That tanks center brace is broken, I would not even consider it at all, not worth the risk.

    A center brace wouldn’t be too difficult to fix.

    This is a 210g tank, means more force needed to hold two sides from bowing.

    We fixed our center brace, not hard at all.

    if the center brace is completely missing, you can place a piece of thick glass and silicone it front and back.
    I also believe those plastic pieces are available for purchase online.
