Sorry to hear that happened. The nice thing is you can just move everything over into the new tank without starting over from square one.

Maybe put some light diffuser on the bottom before you put in rocks or sand in case it was the scape that somehow cracked it. Itíll evenly distribute the weight and keep the rock separate from the glass

Still pretty strange. Bottom glass is pretty strong. Thankfully, it worked out.

This is a link to a seahorse tank I had. They are difficult to keep long term and need to be kept in a species only tank.

The eggcrate distorts the light, not pleasant to look at. If you're a DIY person than making a top from alluminum screen frame and clear vinyl netting is the way to go.

You could always just run it open too, I used to run 99% of my tanks that way, the one I had a flasher wrasse in was the only one I used a top on.
