It's alright I've calmed down now thanks to some other stuff and I just ordered the new tank and it will be here and drilled on Wednesday and I will paint it Wednesday night hopefully to get it filled by the weekend. But this really sucked

I hear ya. I don't know what I'd do in that situation. I would definitely bug out like you wouldn't believe. LOL

But good luck, I hope it all works out on schedule for you.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have a paranoia that the desk my tanks on will break and throw my beloved fish and time work and money all over the floor. Or maybe there will be a leak I don't see until its too late.

But at you did get lucky! And the chances are it wont happen again for a while, if at all.

My little nephew has been trying to catch my fish and the other day he moved the filter over to the side so all the water was spilling onto the hood and down to the floor. I lost about 4 gallons before I saw what was going on. lol

I guess this makes you realize how much time and effort we put into our tanks.
