Now thats a horrible thing to happen to anyone. I could just imagine your stomach jumping up to your throat when you saw the water making its way onto your floor. Good thing you acted quick and looks like you did everything correctly. Congrats on saving everything and new tank looks great

Hey there...thanks for all your comments. The tank is doing great...heres some pics. Got some great new frags. Picked up some australian staghorn...some rose millapora (sp?) Some other sorta of green/purple (super cool) acro...and a softball sized Echinophyllia Orpheensis...mouth full...again not so sure on the spelling but it should be pretty neat when it colors up and recovers from being under the LFS pc lighting. I just got this Finnex MH fixture...but I opted for the 10k due to buget restraints and am already thinking of going bluer. Anybody know anything about the XM 15k 150w? I want to bring out the color in my corals. Any thoughts?

Sweet! The staghorn, very cool. Watch him, they can not right themselves when turned over.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

This is the second time I've seen a nanocube-type aquarium crack like that.. we had one break over a weekend in my office once. Needless to say a break over the weekend with nobody in the office led tlad to total disaster.. glad to see you were able to salvage things!
