Does anyone know of any insurance policy with this kind of coverage? FYI I have State Farm but if my agent doesn't get back to me, I'm shopping for new insurance.
The aquarium is doing very well; it's been up for 13 days now and my chemistry levels are surprisingly healthy!
We have State Farm too, our agent sucks! Like a good neighbor my butt. My apartment has never cared about our aquariums, but my apartment complex also requires a $100k accidental damage coverage that protects other occupants of the building and I believe if anything happened to our aquariums it would be covered under that policy, at least that is what I understood from reading it anyway. A ton of apartments completely forbid any water filled furniture(which our tanks are) so at least be happy that they'll allow it if its insured. Just keep calling your agent every couple of hours or at least 3 times a day, that's what we do and now they know when we call not to stuff us around.
