    Last night I was sitting in my lounge with my lovely 100L fish tank looking at the guys swimming around and doing their thing, next thing I hear a crack and them boom, 100L of water all over my lounge, wetting my PS3 and laptop... so I obviously swore alot last night!
    lank of the fish died, im guessing out of shock, and the rest of them are in buckets at the moment, and i am very worried for their health. I live in clearmont and dont have transport to very far, where on earth is the closest fish shop??
    PLEASE REPLY ASAP
    and if you can a number of the shop.

    I know I'm off topic, but could you at least save the PS and laptop? I would've gone :035:

    Why not go to a glass Company, they can surely put another (maybe bigger size) pane in and it will cost you less than buying a new tank????

    guys, a 100 litre tank is not expensive, id go to SAM.

    Also, i had bought a 1.5 m tank from pet adventure, and it broke, the owner naturally blamed me (oh hes also a lawyer), so nothing from them. My advice would be to never set foot in that place, i know i havent since that day. in other words, DONT GO TO PET ADVENTURE!

    good luck though, just get another tank ASAP.

    later
