The humanity! The humanity!

Were I there, I would be tossing fish in plastic tubs used to bus tables. They should have been able to save many.

Lionfish, of course, would be on their own!

Proximity of electrical outlets is the big danger in trying to save them.



thousands have lived without love; not one without water.

Wow. Those poor fish! I would have been the idiot to try and stop the water from rushing out just to save the fish. LOL

I would also be the idiot trying to save the fish. I wonder who installed this tank? And what it will do for that industry? I doubt there will be lots of people clambering for tanks after this.

Perhaps it was those geniuses from "Tanked."

I personally would find that funny.

None of the fish could be saved?
But the article says:
"All of the tropical fish that were living inside the tank were rescued,"

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

i saw this on Reddit.

the tank was 14,000 gallons (from what people were saying is where i got this), and drained to around 3,000 gallons. all the fish were saved by the people who cleaned the tank, and taken to their warehouse.

it was actually the people from Fish Tank Kings who stocked the tank with corals and fish. apparently a different company put together the acrylic tank. it popped at the seam.

still terrifying

I would laugh, too. But karma can be funny that way.

I'd heard that it was the guys from Fish Tank Kings (which I actually like a little better). This is going to be terrible for their business.

thought thats why those really tall huge tanks were normally custom fabricated without seams???

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Worst. Day. Ever. . .
I'm surprised to see how many people are just casually walking around in ankle-deep water. All fish aside, I'd be nervous of electrocution! Ug. Glad the fish were able to be saved.
