WOW. the worst thing that you can imagine happened to me today. I left my hosue at around 8 am. Returned home to a tank missing the front piece of glass fish, fish on the floor, live rock corals and water everywere! What a mess. I lost all my fish all my corals. The front peice of glass was completly broken off. It seems as if it just came off. Not as if somone broke it. Any one ever expierence anything like this :-( .. im heartbroken

Oh my god, what a nightmare. I'm so sorry, and I've never heard of that happening. What a shame.

My sympathy, and I'm sure the same from everyone here. We're all heartbroken for you.

Remember that Darwin was mostly right!

omg!... im so sorryy!

Ive never heard anything to that extent. What i have heard was one of my old friends had a 150 gallon fish tank. Beutiful! They broke into his house and smashed his tank with a hammer. He as well came home and was devistated.. I think i felt as bad as he did. I feel horrible for you. i feel your pain.

Holy Crap! I had a misadventure of my own this morning with a leaking tank. Your experience makes mine sound easy. Sorry for your loss. I was explaining my situation to a LFS today and they said if the tank is still under warrenty you should be able to get some help from the company. In one case, All Glass Aquarium came to the home, cleaned the carpet and replaced the tank, stand and all on the LR and livestock. Might be something to look into. Hang in there.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I called All Glass and was on the phone for about an hour. They are great. They are also going to send someone out to my house to see whats happened. They said if worse comes to worse that furniture in the room is destroyed they will take care of everything and pay for the damage. Also, they gave me the option of piking out any tank that i wish to have that they make. Biger or smaller! Still heartbreaking. But im looking around to see for a huge addition to my house. If they are offering it i might as well take advantage of it.

i am so depresed!

this really stinks but if they are offering to pay for damage and replace the tank...with a bigger one this could turn out very good! I know you lost tons of mony in livestock but at least thats the only thing you lost!
again im so sorry!
