Gill, what are you planning on doing with that crack?

Maybe its a good excuse to get a bigger tank. :)

OMG!

Maybe it's burst and the resulting tidal wave has left them both stranded miles from home?

Guys Sorry for not Replying.

Been really ill for the last 3 weeks and have not been able to do anything, as been having fits that were lasting more than 3 days long and meds would not work. The Vertigo Fits were the Worst and would last hours at a Time.

Have had to have 3 weeks of Work.


Right, Teh Mahhhooooossssiive Crack has been sealed for now with Good Old Duck Tape.

Once i Have Torn Down the Tank today and Sold Most of the plants from the Open Sale i am Hanving today and tommorow.

I am going to cut some Spare Peices of Flaot Glass and Make Braces to Secure the Crack Properly.
I have been Given Full Instructions By Rob on what to Do. Then i will Slather the actual crack in Silicone befoer putting another peice Diagonally long the Crack.

My Dad got my Uncle to Precision Cut some Float Glass Off Cuts for me - so they will fit the Dimension Perfectly.

Gill,

that sounds terrible, fits for yours must really take it out of you. I have no idea what vertigo fits are unless you have been hanging around the top of ladders? lol

So this sounds pretty major, this crack, i dont quite understand it, is the float glass going to cover the width of the side of the tank?

Has your wifey been nice to you since breaking your tank? :p

Glad to hear you are through that bad patch, hope they dont happen often for you...and hopefully not again.

Vertigo Fits are Like Standing on the top of Blackpool tower and your head is psinning so much you can't talk or walk or do anything. Your Vision Comes and goes and its hard to focus on anything for more than a few minutes.
But new meds have been working so far, so its ok.

Yeah i will have 2 Braces across the top and bottom and then a large pane siliconed over the crack.

Sold Loads of Stuff to Rob this Afternoon and Came back with Loads of Stuff and Fish.
Emptied a few of his tanks :lol: :lol:

PS you better not go anywhere near the SB Clown Plecs he has in, Once he has priced them they are mine.

Im a bit confused.

I thought you only had the 5x3x2 now or do you still have lots of tanks around the house?

BTW ill be selling my rio 400 and Rena Aqualife 350....guessing though you might have a full house.

Is the 6x2x2 an addition to the 5x3x2 or is it replacing it?

My 8x2x2 came yesterday...its HUGE!
