A giant, circular fish tank in the middle of the T-Rex Cafe sprung a leak, sending gallons of water streaming out.
A leaky fish tank is never a good thing. You will have to move fast. The lives of fish are in danger. This wikiHow is written from experience, a bad one. Fish tanks don't leak often. It usually happens to old aquariums that have taken a bad beating or to new ones that were not made right.
The wife woke me up at 7.30 this morning to my 1600 l aquarium !! Shit !!! Have stopped the leak for the meantime but my fish will have to go !!! Can't believe it !!!
Here is a link to a thread where ive posted pic's and a bit of info about how and why the tank cracked !!!! :)

According to , staff kept fish safe: "[E]mployees scooped up the fish in a net as the water level dropped quickly and brought out trash cans and long-handled squeegees." Witnesses say (and the videos below also suggest) that the tank appeared to be leaking at a seam. Go, watch:3. Is the water level pass your top trim - a loose top trim sometimes acts like a siphon & wicks water from the tank to the outside. I took your advice and I think I've determined that the source of the leak is the filter. My aquarium has built in filtration (it's a glass aquarium, fwiw) and when the filter swells with water all the way, the water rises to the very top of the spillway. Then, when I close my tank lid, the water overflows down the back of the aquarium, funnels through the bottom plastic trim, and then appears to be a leak from the bottom corner of the tank itself. I've been monitoring it very carefully this morning and once I was able to get all the water soaked up with a paper towel, I have not noticed any further water collection in the area that I thought was leaking. Last night I wasn't able to get the little puddle to go away, so I thought it was leaking from the glass seams. Today, I looked behind the tank and I could see the trails where water has leaked down the back of the tank. I'm going to keep monitoring it just to ensure that it's not a leak from the glass. I woke up this morning fully thinking I was going to have to move all my fish to a 10 g emergency tank and then completely drain my 40 g to deal with leaky glass. If nothing else, this prompts me to wash out my emergency tank and have it ready to go at a moment's notice. Thank you for responding - I so appreciate it
