This is the result of a bad seam. I will rebuild.
Hands on build with pics to be posted soon.
Now this is not what I expected to see when I read the title of the thread.
How old was this tank?
I hope you were able to re-settle the tank inhabitants and the flood was not to great.
I hope the tank seam did not give way when it was full of water Peppie?
because that tank looks like it would have held a lot of water
Wow! Not Good!
Man that seriously sucks. I think there would be more than a tear in my beer if that was my tank.
The title is an attention getter LOL
Corailline, I built the tank, and it was 4 mo old. $400 and about 45 hrs of labor reduced to some bowed 1/2'' acrylic for my next build.
Steve, It held 90gal. I noticed the bad seem and marked how long it was right away. 24 hrs later it was 1/2'' longer. I tore it down within 3hrs after that.
I didnt lose anything in the transfer, except my pride. LOL
well thats good news Peppie ,in a way
could have been a whole lot worse if you had not been as vigilant and reacted quickly enough
avoiding the flood was definitely a major advantage
The wife would have had me by the...... For a lllooonnnggg time.
Call me dumb, stupid, glutten for punishment, whatever, But I am going to try to weld another tank together LOL
K+++ for your endeavour, you made it a lot farther then I would have.
There was alot of thought that went into the design of that tank. It work very well for a DIY build. It was a success in my mind less the bad seam. Shame on me. I will be much more careful on the seam prep for the next build.
Most of the time for me " Its All About The Hunt" not the kill
