The mighty has fallen!
 
After 18 years, my 75g finally sprung a leak.:redmad: The silicon will need replacing. I found the problem after checking it thoroughly this morning having discovered the garage floor flooded. Tank will be drained tomorrow and repaired on Saturday which means I'll need to do it all over again.:(

Synos and bichir will be housed in a 10 and a 15g temporarily until hopefully Monday.

I feel for you. At least it was a garage floor and not carpeting. I had a 45 that sprung a leak once, not good times.

Aww Lupin! Good luck re-starting.
No worries, of all people- you're not the one I would expect to mess up.

Hope things work out and best of luck with the new setup.

Sorry to hear of your tank loss. I had a 55 lose 1/3 of its water while we were away for the day. In the living room. Had a tiny stroke of luck though. The subflooring under carpet there had a joint very near the aquarium and the water went dripped through to the basement. Carpet got minimal.
