Unhappy No more faux Betta in a Vase :(

So, many of you saw pics I posted a few weeks ago of Lily's vase, unfortunately it is no longer..

As I was sitting here about an hour ago her vase cracked in 3 places on the bottom, it no longer holds water.. Luckily it was only a slow leak, and I was able to remove her from the vase, and remove the vase from my desk (water and computers are probably not a smart combo, but oh well) before too much water leaked out.

Her vase and fake lily have become an ornament on my nightstand (with no water of course) and I just spent half an hour girly-ing up my 3/4 gallon hospital tank for her to live in until I decide on a new home for her. I'm nervous about the stress of a water change and then a breaking vase and new home all in one day, but I hope she will get over it quickly.

Sorry for the wall of text, I'm not having a good day with my betta's :(

I think it may have been weakened when i poured the gravel in during her water change earlier because it was just sitting on the desk when it cracked.
