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!
oh my goodness how awful…what have you done with it now ?
especially on used tanks!
the very best of luck :-)
Ugh! That is every aquarist's nightmare :(
Sorry that you had to go through that and I'm glad that the damage wasn't as bad as it could have been. Did any fish survive?
Good luck with your search for a new stand.
Unfortuantely, I had no where to put them so ive got 55 gallons worth of fish in 20 gallon. But then again, Its better than nothing. I'll be doing water changes to keep up with the nitrate levels.
The stand should be here later today!
That's great news!! :redyay: :blueyay:
Just thought I'd update everyone. Our stand didnt come until 2 weeks ago. So all fish are now happy and safe inside their 55 gallon again! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Happy Thanksgiving to you too. :-D
glad things are going well .
