Unhappy Some sympathy...

I just dropped my brand new 30 gallon tank. It shattered. I just wanted to tell someone.

I am sorry too. How disappointing that must be.

I think after being in the hobby long enough we all have accidents like that! Just be glad it was not filled! I broke a forty that was built into the wall,, ooops it was filled!!!

When looking for a solution to an Aquarium problem go slow and change only one parameter at a time!

What a drag. I like underh2o's perspective. Imagine if the tank had already been filled with your favorite fish! All the same, it still sucks that it broke. Sorry.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Oh, noooooo.

You have my sympathy.

(I suggest that you check your contents insurance to see if you are covered for this.)

Oh that's heartbreaking

But like others have already stated - luckily it was empty. Go out and buy an even bigger tank to feel better.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
