13000 Gallon Tank Cracks

Click the link to see video.

Sometimes it doesn’t take much to dampen all the fun, and all it took this weekend was a crack in a 13,000 gallon aquarium to cause Gulfstream Racing and Casino Park in Miami to shutdown the casino over this holiday weekend washing away plans for thousands of patrons over the busy holiday weekend. The crack caused most of the water in the aquarium to escape and flood the bar area the aquarium was housed in about two minutes. The deluge of water also caused damage in the casino area immediately below the aquarium.

Luckily they managed to save all the fishes that called the tank home.

Can u imagine. I mean if this happens to one of our tanks we can catch wi t h a bucket. Just think if this was in your house. You would hace to just sit and watch helplessly.

The fact that this was on a floating rocking boat may have had something to do with the failure.
