RCode I won't complain about evaporation any more... glad I don't have those issues in my region. It just gets really damn cold, but can't complain really.

Glad to hear you are okay, water can always be cleaned up.

somewhatshocked Quakes and tanks have to be a really scary combination.

With the abundance of rimless, open-top tanks in quake-prone areas, there must be something people do to avoid water sloshing out and causing problems. Maybe some kind of extremely absorbent material?

I know people put lips on their stands to prevent tanks from sliding off but I'd never considered water sloshing out.

rimless tank+condo+earthquake= !!

Finally got home from work to check out the damage from the earthquake that just hit us here in Japan. My 55g looks fine, no water spillage I think. My 20L a a few rocks shifted, salvinia all over the leaves of my riparium plants and I think just minor water spillage. Now my rimless nano is the worst, I think over a liter came out of that tank. Just glad all my DIY stands held up and water didn't short out my extention cords...next project..build a proper place for electrical stuff..no joke....
