    Cracked rim

    Just got this 180 gallon.. is this crack on the rim going to be a huge problem? Any solutions?

    That's a big separation IMO. Could compromise the integrity of the tank. Rimmed tanks aren't made like rimless where the sealant is special grade.
    I would try a ratchet strap, fill the gap with something like weldon then tighten the strap until that gap is completely closed, let cure. Just my idea is all.
