Lol it's just a while back there was a few ppl thinking the new madrid fault had a big one coming since it hasn't had a big quake (series) since 1811-1812. Made the Mississippi run backwards lol.

As you may have noticed by now I overthink things way too much.

and cali is going to fall off into the ocean..... you can sit and worry and there some things you should prepare for but large bodies of water take a lot of force to knock over.

Haha yeah. I guess it didn't sink into my head how heavy the 55g was just sliding it with just enough water to keep the fish alive. At least it's in a more stable place now (it used to wobble really bad in it's original spot). Thanks.

I'm glad someone else posted! I have actually been wondering about that for a while now as well (along with what I would do about my fishtanks to try and make them as "earthquake proof" as possible). I live in Memphis, which is pretty much right on the New Madrid fault. Around here people are always talking about how we're long overdue for a major earthquake. It never hurts to think about it or be prepared I guess.

If cali falls off into the ocean and becomes a island then you will be close to a new reef eventually. lol

COMPLETELY is the key word here

I see no need to worry. If you have a earthquake the tank is to heavy to tip really. I live in florida and according to the global warming specs with the ice caps melting most of florida is gonna be under water. Fortunatly i live in 1 of the higher peeks of Florida and most maps predict that we are gonna be a little island. My mom says she is waiting and looking forward to it because we will finally have water front property.

You dont see me worrying, lol.

Wait, does that mean Las Vegas becomes a beach town? I'm liking this idea more and more.

Seriously, as long as you have a sturdy and stable stand, (absent any dwelling structural issues) you should be fine.

P.S. Buy some desert before its gone!!!!!!!!!
