    Hi Guys,

    The worste thing happened, My light unit has a glass cover between the lamps and tank, which cracked

    At about 9 I found the glass cracked and managed to remove the unit and most of the glass without dropping anymore into the tank, but upon inspection i did find a few pieces of glass in the tank

    Please tell if a few pieces of glass in the tank will be dangerous ? i assuming the will wear out with all the friction and not pose any danger ...but just looking for some support on this theory

    Thanks

    I would try and remove as much of it as possible. Will take quite a while to wear down with friction.

    It won't be dangerous as in leaching something, I mean the tank is made from glass :p
    But, if you have burrowing fish like wrasses or a sand sifting goby it might cut itself with small sharp pieces :(
