That sucks. Why an outside tank? Just curious.

Sorry for your loss :(

Depending on your location...keeping a 5g tank outside in the middle of winter just seems like it would be obvious that it would freeze solid.

Thanks for taking the time to create a thread, but....
 
I'm really curious to see what this "frozen" tank looks like.

What species of shrimp did you keep in there?

I had a 20G tank outside that I was testing for leaks all summer, but I brought the inhabitants back indoors around October and the water was about 40 degrees F.

Really ? You have a tank outside in the middle of January and have no idea it would freeze ? Hmmm....

I think you're being trolled, folks.

No way a tank would freeze in Hawaii.
