Honestly, it could completely dump on your floor at any time
I disagree bang guy.
I had a 29 tank which had a crack running across the entire bottom (it was sat on a "pebble" and filled with water outside to clean it.. thus cracking it) I siliconed both sides and made my own stand for it (it was made of 2x4s and had 2 sets of 3 supports.. one in the middle and one on either side) and the tank worked great for a yr till I moved it to a 15 for lighting issues.
For all the more that these tanks cost, do you really think that it's worth taking a chance on ruining your carpet, floor, stand and everything else saltwater would pour onto? Not to mention all the livestock in the tank which could die if this thing burst when no one was home.
Use some common sense people!
BTW, it's not very hard to repair broken tanks. Though sometimes it's cheaper to just buy a new one, and used tanks can be found very easily.
