I did some searching and couldn't find much so I'll post my questions here.
Does anyone earthquake proof their aquariums?
I live in a subduction zone that is supposed to get a major earthquake anytime within the next 50-100 years. Some experts even say we're overdue. We usually have a massive earthquake every 300-400 years, and they've been able to look at Japanese records and confirm our area has these massive earthquakes by tracking the history rogue tsunamis hitting Japan. (Rogue tsunami is a tsunami that hits Japan when there was no earthquakes nearby)
Because we almost never get any real earthquake activity between these massive quakes that are 400 years apart, most people around here don't worry about it. If you look at the "Ring of Fire", the Pacific Northwest is the only area that hasn't had a major earthquake recently.
I do believe we could be in for the "big one" in my lifetime, and I'd like to try and build my aquarium stand so that if my house is still standing my fishtank will be too.
I'll have enough problems with the earthquake and it's effects, I don't want to mourn my fishies at the same time.
So does anyone with aquariums live in active earthquake zones? If so how do you deal with it? What should I look for when buying or building an earthquake safe aquarium stand?
