hmmm maybe seal it with some water proof sealent and hurry up and get a replacement tank quick quick. if you dont have sealent, maybe put your fish somewhere else or if you think they can still live there until you can get a new tank.

Put all your fish slowly in a large bucket. Then place your filter and turn on the airpump to provide oxygen for them. Be sure to use your tank water. You can still use it when you have a new tank.

In the meantime, try to reseal the crack or buy a new tank as suggested.

I don't think so. If your filter is not on the works, you may experience ammonia and nitrite spikes.

ok ill get a bucket the tank is in my room so ill check up on it if i wake in the middle of the night or something. as for the filter it can still reach the water and it filtering the water. so im hoping it can hold till tomorrow. i will most likely just go out and get a replacement tank in the morning so a bucket wont be an issue.
