Ha ha, glad to be reminded I'm not alone in my aqua-insanity Matt.Lmao. We always need another bbxb and 325. Or in my case, 4-6 more rays and 3-4 more 500g + tanks. Lol
Nope, worst fears if a completely filled 325 tank and finding out it's cracked and no back-up tank whatsoever ; - )
Very true DN328, clearly a back-up tank in some form or another is essential to have. I had just broken down this 4 footer; after this I'll probably keep it running.
Joking aside, it sounded like the best possible outcome given the situation for Islandguy and his aro.
Lucky indeed headbanger_jib, if I were on a business trip things would have been way, way more complicated. I'm now going to set up some 'Emergency Response Procedures' for my daughter and staff to follow with help of LFS should similar ever occur while I'm away in future.Whoa!!!
Lucky you were at home when that happened, bless the tiles floors, just mop and wipe and you're good to go.
I faced a similar issue, after I got the flat re-tiled and a few renovations, moved the tanks back in, was tired after all the moving in, woke up next morning and I see the tank is crystal clear and the aurantimaculata just sitting on the gravel, I am like how did the water clear up just overnight, and then it hit me, luckily had a spare tank, and repaired the tank the same evening.
I'm also adding water alarms to the floor on both sides of my bigger tanks now (previously I only had them in the tubs holding canisters/UV sterilizers).
Btw, did you determine what the cause of your leak was?
Thanks midasman714 (ha ha 714 brings back good memories for me; went to university in OC).Could've been worse and seems like you handled the situation well, kudos for that!
