If you are still concerned you could leave a large tub where the splash zone would be to catch the fish so they could survive until you found em.

That would be assuming it was a catastrophic failure and not just a fast leak, which would drain out and let all the fish stay in the tank and die.

At the least, get a big rubbermaid tub, fill it up and put your fish and equipment in it.

Don't cheap out now, be responsible with your fish.

Exactly what what I was going to say. Experienced this problem before at 11pm.. I went to Walmart and got a tub and start transferring water, fish and plants into it as a temp tank. The next few days the fish and plants may it. Hot a new tank and all is well. Some times stuff happens in the hobby that that really suck but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Good point, I think that if he plans to do anything that your plan sounds like the best one. I just didn't think the OP was grooving on that idea is all.
