75 Gallon blow out

I just thought Id share this with you guys... About a week ago I was getting ready for bed, and I heard a funny cracking...tinkling noise. Well I turned on the light just in time to see a large stream of water shooting out of the bottom of my 75 gal fresh water tank . What a hell of a mess it made... all the carpet was ruined and had to be removed. My wet/dry vac had a hard time sucking up all the gravel and water from the floor...

Well on a happy note I found 2 55 gal complete setup replacments, 1 has a wooden stand and the other no stand. Im quite happy with them, and only lost 1 fish in the blowup.

Ill just say, I hope nothing like this has to happen to someone else.... what a mess

Congrats on finding replacements. I am sure that must have been heartbreaking, not to mention extremely a pain to clean.

OMG!!! That is my greatest fear and the primary reason I carry renters insurance.

What did you do with your fish until you were able to pick up the replacement tanks? I'm also curious what caused the failure.
