| || | WARNING **Check your seams regularly**
Today, I learned the hard way of not checking my seams of the fish tank regularly. Remember, Everyone makes mistakes...Including factories. I woke up this morning and heard water loudly. I thought maybe it was hot last night and an inch or two of water evaporated. So I made breakfast and went to eat in the living room, discovering my living room was flooded by 55 gallons of water. It was bad, All of the power strips were shorting out and we live in an old house...With wood floors. So far the damage was not done to the floor because it was cleaned up before it soaked in.
So for the new fish keepers, remember that everyone makes mistakes and check your seams!
