I am looking for 4 hinges for my ELOS 200 XL. The ones I have are very rusty and I tried in different hardware stores without any luck, it seems to be european.

Any help

For the price of those sets, they should offer a lifetime warranty.
Do you have a pic of the hinge

Definitely. They are totally rusted because they are not stainless or aluminum, and impossible to source

You will not be able to find them locally. I had to order mine directly from Elos in Italy. Elos USA will probably be the only source in the US.
When you get the new hinges, you can spray them with food grade oil to avoid rusting in the future. I spray my hinges once a month, and they have not rusted.

It is not possible because they are smaller then the originals

Im making my own tank and stand next time around. I spent 5k on a crystal dynamics and theres bubbles in the glass, starfire glass is green, paint chips if you cough on it.

This world is going to get really tough for people that like quality. Everyone is chasing the buck with very little pride in what they do.
 

Do you have any "bully fish" in your tank?
