Shock you??? Like an electrical shock?! Do you have any heaters or other equipment in the tank? sounds like your heater or whatever you have in there is broken isn't water proof anymore and you are getting shocked....i don't know if im making any sense here, but if you take out any thing that is plugged in, do you still get shocked???

Good luck!! I think your on the right track, if it bothers you imagine what it is doing to your fish 8O I would also recommend you plug all your aquarium equipment into a GFCI receptacle and install a grounding probe to your tank

you should just check to see if you see any water inside the heater.. that was what happened to mines.. i didn't see a crack, but i did see water in there...
