Omg I felt the anxiety in "where's that pebble"
Reminds me of the time I came home from a weekend trip and found my 20gal tank 75% drained and my fish swimming in like 3 inches of water. Sprung a leak while I was gone and came home to a crazy scene
Hey Joey.. I was just curious what you use as padding underneath your aquariums.? Do you just use floor underlay or.?
haha tryin to be an actor so hard=D ..but educational it is man, no doubt there
And it only makes one tiny mistake to kill them all. And you love them and they are your babies and the guilt is pure. You have to say to yourself that they would have had a harder time in the wild . 35 years and counting.
20mm on the bottom preferably perspex. Nuff said.
It popped because you did not seal it properly and used too thin a glass.
Thanks for making this video. As I am thinking about my new tank. It is a fraction of the size of the one that you had, but it is always a great thing to know what not to do and what to look out for. It is an expensive lesion, but like you said, now you know. Thanks again for sharing!
I feel so bad
Great Video. Thanks
im glad u did the video. educational for sure. im sorry for the ordeal
just a thought, but could you put a piece of yoga mat fitted and attached to the bottom of the tank, to prevent situations like that. or a harder foam such as polystyrene.
What's the TL:DR advice here? Sorry I cannot watch the whole video…but what's the 2 or 3 main takeaways?
I got a 100 gallon tank it has 1 in glass that’s for $150 from market place when I told him when we where going to pick it up he send me the address and it was my neighbor 😂😂😂😂 I was soprised
I'm now worried about my five gallon NANO tank, lol.
Ever notice how these things always happen to you when you go away on a trip lol? (old video, I know)
My 10g tank did the same thing to me. But i had it on a coffee table with nothing underneath. Still guessing what happened.
Why does something always go wrong while you are gone???? That is scary dude, I would never want to leave.
Joey: "They are gasping for air" lol
Sorry you went through that bro !
What mats are those that you use?
thats why dont buy tanks buy plastic tubs instead or big containers
Thank you for sharing this learning experience and holding your phone the right way why you record
What a great actor.
To know that those fish survived for hours without water is amazing… I truly believe those fish held onto life because of you and your love for these animals.
We place styroboards underneath our tanks 🙂
Thank you for your honestly. I have had a tank pop.I also woke up to a soaked carpet and water everywhere. It's heartbreaking.
A F" Pebble gawd damn……
What kind of mat or bottom do you use?
I’ve just faced something very similar. Does anyone have the video link of repairing the glass. Thanks
I just had a 10 gallon bottom crack. No idea why. Just glad I have a tank I can put the fish in for the time being. I’m just glad I was in the room when it happened.
I can get fish like them but not the same fish 😂 well duh
I'm so glad you did show as new getting into the hobby those little unspoken things that really come to count thanks that's stepping up and bestowing a very valuable lesson rule but yes it still happens thanks for the reveal and where I am mistaken you do here it's spoken the level of a tank and pressure points but it never hits hot a new to the hobby you need 2 take in much information thank you so much
Every time this man travels somewhere something happens to an aquarium🤦
Thanks for sharing this, it could help in the future and save this from happening to others.
Im glad you filmed this Joey. It shows we are all human. If watching you learn from your mistakes it only helps this hobby. Thank you!
I had 1 tank pop on me and just like you it was a stone underneath so easily done I was that excited about setting my aquarium up I just didn’t check properly I ended up buying some aquarium sealant and some methylated spirits and re sealed it and made a soft base from Perspex 10 months in and still going strong
Do I really wanna do this in my living room??? Mo $$$$$$, Mo $$$$$$$
Glad you posted this bro. Really really appreciate it. Makes me wanna take extra care when setting up my stands
Wow dame rock on to the next tank r.i.p. old tank hello new
I'm using my girlfriends phone as I just broke I watch you riligasly on my owt account but I just wanted to say thanks for actually posting this J I'm relatively new to this compared to you but I will be sure to check and check again from now on. I'm glad the fish were ok bud
This scares me from my first tank, but I am committed. Sorry for this happening to you.
Like that shirt
I have one doubt do you have a mic in your cctv camera?
I’m am so sorry to hear and see what happened to your tank and fish. But, I also want to thank you for “educating” me about the likelihood of something like this happening and precautions I can take to help avoid it.
I am a retired special education teacher after forty-two years. I’ve always shared with my students how we can best learn from our mistakes. You did that for us!
