Emergency Help/Advice Needed - Fish tank Leak

11 months 2 weeks ago #38010 by Iku1
Kiddie pool is good idea if you have space. They are probably 4 feet diameter. Temperature shouldn't be a problem but besides air stones I would put sponge filter in too.

They are all full size...3-5 inches each. I'm in the Oswego area and still haven't found a place that could come out. I am at the point that I would be concerned if a full re-caulk job wasn't done.
Latest idea is a plastic kiddie pool. Smaller one would be 40 gallons for $10. The fish would have to be at room temperature with only air pump stones as aeration until the project was complete which I would assume maybe a week. I have about 75lbs of sand and almost 200lbs of Texas Holey Rock to move and put back.

I'm also about 50/50 for just finding a new home for the fish. It's a monster project and I'm just of knee replacement surgery. I would need to call in neighbors to make this happen.

Depends on how big are your fishes, maybe plastic totes would work as an emergency tank.

Hi everyone,

I have at least 20 Mbuna cichlids in a 110 gallon tank in my basement. Tank decided to leak at the seam and made quite the mess. Need to either

1) find someone/company who can help set-up emergency tanks while everything is removed to fix seams.
2) Buy everything to do the same myself
3) Sell fish and equipment and take a break

Thoughts? I drained the water level down to the leak for now (about a 1/3 of the way up from the bottom) but to fix I would have to take out even more water and not sure how well the fish will survive for 48 hours while I repair what is above the water line while the silicone dries.

Thanks
Allan
