:-(. No doubt. Better safe than flooded and maybe cut up with glass tho. That's always been my worst aquarium nightmare! You could check our Craigslist since all you'd need to replace is the glass tank. I've seen many tank alone ads for $40-60.

I would put the current stock in a rubbermaid container or similar for now, and empty the tank ASAP though. 55 gal of water on the floor of your house could cause some major, major damage.

Save your fish!! Good luck. I had to replace my tank too bc it started leaking, but if it had burst on me I'd have to rehome myself, let alone my fish

You need to break out the hair dryer and quickly hit it with epoxy.

I would just empty it. While quick setting epoxy might help, I wouldn't risk pressing on the crack, and blasting it with heat. Could cause a weak crack to fail sooner. If the tank is in your house, I would just get a $10 big rubbermaid container for now, put the fish in, and get the tank emptied.

Ah we'll that's a good thing so long as it won't ruin anything. If you have a catastrophic failure though it would kill all the livestock.
