What a professional aquarium looks like when it fails.

This is just painful to watch. Its an aquarium at a Disney World restaurant that breaks at one of the seams. I hope they have lots of silicone.

Didn't 'tanked' put that tank in?

Really hope people wise up and learn to have quality equipment before investing in thousands of dollars in livestock. Seriously, investing 1k more isn't much when you have 30k in fish.
