FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:
Q: Will the clear tanks let sunlight in? If so, will algae grow in them?
A: Yes and yes. Algae develops with sunlight and stagnant water, so, if you are looking to prevent algae build-up in your tank, we recommend either: 1) Electing to get the black tank instead (which is opaque); or 2) Putting goldfish or an occasional dose of hydrogen peroxide in your tank.
Q: Can the tanks be painted?
A: Yes, but plastic is a difficult surface for paint adhesion. If you are wanting to paint your tank, we recommend using a bonding primer as a base, then applying your exterior paint over that (either latex or oil-based). Also, it is a good idea to have your tank in place before painting it -- moving it around after painting will undoubtedly cause scratching. Finally, be prepared to touch up the tank every now and then (usually once every couple years) to keep it looking solid. It shouldn't require a whole new coat -- just touch-ups.
Q: Do you ship your above-ground tanks?
A: Yes. Please call for freight quote.
