675 gallon aquarium busted!!!

I have a 675 gallon aquarium. I also have several very expensive fish in it. Well there is a small pin sized hole in the silicon toward the bottom. I now have it drained about half way and my fish in a safe of spots as I can but I am afraid my fish may die or this thing will bust all over my floor due to the pressure. Ugh. My husband went to buy four 125 gallons from jacks to try to hold us over till we get this fixed. Wish me luck!!

You know you can get some stuff from the pets tore that will stop the leak.

It has to be dry for 24-48 hours to work. I will be posting pics as soon as I can

Oh, I know. This happened to me the night before we went out of town a few years ago. All we could do was put the fish in bowls and hope they survived. We did put the stuff on the tank that night. And amazingly the fish were alive when we got home.

Your lucky!!! I am taking my sting ray to my moms house because she has one (in a 55 gallon) and I hand raised them both. They are ultra sensitive to changes and she will have water in the right levels. We have a wedding to go to in a few hours. Ugh
