Angry 1st planted tank

Well I planted my 1st tank-my daughters 10 gal on wed/thursday. I was going to take pic's this morning. Never got to it I got home from work last night and I was rocking my daughter and looking at thje tank thinking it was funny that the water was so low already.

The glass was cracked -$h!t Who the hell sells aquariums at 10 pm! so this morning when the stores open I need to go shopping. There goes my 65 gal fund. Don't want another 10-so I guess we are going to look for a 20 or 29 gal.-

Do you know what kind of aquarium the 10 gallon was? Was it an All Glass aquarium?

Did you bought the tank recently? Maybe you can exchange it.
