There are a couple of plywood tank builds on here but it definitely isn't the norm. I would search for those threads and talk to the people that built then.

I've not seen it used before. Is it reefsafe? A major concern with wood tanks is structural integrity. What are tank dimensions?

3x8x1 foot, the manufacturer says it can be used for koi ponds

I am concerned about leaching and all, the guy selling has been using it for corals

I assume it's 3/4" plywood. If it's only 1 foot tall my guess is it should not bow excessivly, but I'd fill and check bow with a string before buying. Is this a 'lookdown' tank with no viewing panels?

If the rubber is OK for koi and the seller kept coral in it without issues, sounds good to me.

Yes look down tank,
Guess I am concerned about the long term out gassing

Also koi and anemones are different from a hardiness perspective
