At the end of the day a fish is a fish big or small. And if you think about it we do this hobby for the fish they are the picture so the tank is just a frame holding the picture. But a nice frame does help
I intend to live forever. So far, so good.k:

Agree with thincat,With the cost of that tank can you imagine what else would be in that house just to be destroyed by the tank emptying out?They must remove the panelling to find the location of the leak asap before the damage is done,imagine that amount of water flowing through the house just because of a few panels or even all of them being removed!!

WOW. That is on amazing gold fish bowl!! I have to agree with everyone here though, with 16 tons of water in the tank, I am not sure that standard sealant will be able to withstand that type of pressure. I would check with a public aquarium or maybe a professional custom tank builder to get an experts opinion. I would love to know what ends up inside this tank and what type of mechanics will run it

My sentiments actually WOW and Double WOW. I agree with KBCoggin get with a Public Aquarium that houses such size aquariums they should be able to help if not this would be a long shot how about a Zoo that you might have gone to in the past that would have large aquaruims.

Only a suggestion hope everything turns out okay.
