how to make your aquarium quakeproof
I live in California, L.A. to be exact.
anyone know or can suggest how to quakeproof your tank?
best way i would think is the following
stand: heavy duty and low as possible(stop the tank toppling)
tank: decor tied down with cable ties(rocks,wood)
tank: acylic not glass tank would not splinter like glass if stressed
thats about all i can think of :D
If you have a good LFS around, ask someone there what they do in the shop and at home.
Put a bit of carpet felt under the tank. Don't put it straight onto a wooden or metal stand. Whether it's glass or acrylic, it will act as a bit of a shock absorber.
You could try using a larger piece of furniture for the stand. Something with a larger base than the aquarium itself so if it rocks it won't roll!
Also don't put it under anything that will fall and make a fish-kabob

thanks for all the suggestions?
but any suggestions on how to prevent the water from sploshing around the aquarium and spilling?
