I am very new to this hobby, but my son wanted an animal ... and he seemed to be really into fishes... so I have decided to get him an aquarium for his BD...
Well I am a bit nerdy and obsessive so without any fish I started researching and researching and researching... so I ended up with 55 Gallon Aquarium stand etc... and over 1000$ less well off,
We already had our first water incident during initial filling- 5 gal
of water leaving the aquarium, thankfully it all collected inside the stand, We were able to remedy the situation within 30 mins. so nothing major happened ( I hope the integrity of the stand is still ok)
The tank is undergoing a fishless cycling process and still in Stage One.
One thing just hit me... The aquarium is located on the first floor in the corner for of the house right over our Electrical panel (which is located one floor below in the basement).
This seems to me is a recipe for disaster... Unfortunately it is a perfect spot as far as stability and esthetics are concerned, but I am a bit worried?
So I think I would like to ask more experienced fishkeepers. Do you guys think I should move it? (I think I know what the answer is and it involves work
Thank You and all the best
