I can safely agree.. Was given a 75 gallon tank by my grandma, which hadn't been used over 5 years, couple months after adding fish.. Sprung a leak.. My fish lived in a 20 gallon long tank for a couple months til I got the tank fixed & cycled.. It was a horrible mess.. Waking up to about 20+ gallons in the floor.. (and i had hard wood floors)
