    With regular water changes and maintenance it should be. Have you been making sure the filters are in prime running condition?

    You should also change out that rusting piece of metal on the top of your tank.

    It could cause problems if it hasn't already.

    What is that rusty piece of metal? A center brace?

    Been out of sight and out of (my) mind for a while. Thinking of getting another tank or 4 and rebuilding the fish room.

    As long as the metal was structurally sound I wouldn't sweat it.

    Most manufacturers sell them, I know I eventually have to purchase a replacement top glass for my 55($15).

    People are worried about the rust getting into the tank, I wouldn't be too worried about that in all honestly.
