Tank Emergency!!!!!

I was doing a 100% water change on my 2 gal. acrylic hex tank. I was almost done and I was filling it up with water when it slipped. I dropped the tank into the bathtub maybe only a foot. It landed right side up and I was phew! Then I saw about an 1 inch vertical crack. And of course the water began leaking out. I get paid in a few days so I can get a new tank then. But until then mako will have to live in a small vase (it's all I had). it's pretty cold here at night. I put his heater in with him. My question is will he be ok in such a small smace with a heater? The vase is maybe 1/2 a gal. Luckily he is very small. The heater is for a 2-15 gal tank. Will he be ok for a few days until I get his new tank?

Monitor your water temp carefully (some heaters are great at scaling; others not so much), water changes every day, and otherwise he'll be wonderful! Good luck on everything. :)

I'm sure he will be fine. And agh, tanks can get so heavy! It's hard to carry my 1.5 gallon around. :)

i posted this in your other thread, but if you need a good, cheap, temporary tank, buy a storage bin! :3 sterilite is what i use, and my Zidane loves it! they're way less than ten bux, and it'd be safer heating one of them, imo.

Actually, I did that a couple days ago, but it was when I was filling my brand new tank. I walked to put it on the table and it slipped. Woops :3 my fish wasn't in it though. it was still in the bowl.

Psssst, everybody: GET A GRIP!

Really... Get yourselves some grippy rubber gloves, like the kind people use when washing dishes. You'll find them in the cleaning aisle and they are usually yellow and elbow length.

"Remember.... You'll be less slip-y when your grip-y!"

Ah, I need a job in advertising... lol
