Worst Weekend Ever!

Post by Lilfishie on Sun Mar 20, 2011 10:16 am

As if loosing Sherbert and a Falx wasn't bad enough, the tank with Polo and Raja in decided to crack and break this morning sending 40l of water across my bedroom floor.

it cracked down the back of the tank so straight onto all the electrics and there was me and my mum stood in the water try to grab the boys, not worrying about ourselves Rolling Eyes

now i am going to buy another 2ft tank for all 4 boys to live in as the tank Prince and Jovi were going in is the same as the one that cracked so i don't want to risk it

Sounds like it might have a section of defective glass if it did it on its own.
Were moving it at all or bump it? Did the glass break itself or did the seam give away. Theres usually a reason no matter how slight!

God, I can only imagine the mess that caused. I don't know how I would have handled that. Screamed with frustration most likely!!
