Is this normal?

So today I went through my gearbag and saw my tank looking like this with cracks all over the clear coating of the tank. Is this safe to play with or should I call ninja and ask about replacing it? I've never seen anything like this before let alone heard something like this happening.

There is a manufacturers defect with the outer coating of a batch of tanks being too hard and cracking. As long as no fibers are exposed it is still safe to use but you have to keep an eye on the cracks. It should only be the upper/outer coating layer and not the actual clear lacquer; just the black lacquer.
