Video of a 1500-Gallon Aquarium Bursting


Here’s a great video for those who think that tank accidents can’t happen to them. As you can see toward the end of the video, the large acrylic back of the aquarium broke, allowing the store to become flooded almost instantly. The acrylic looks very thick, but it apparently wasn’t thick enough to hold back the massive amount of water. Fortunately, there were no animals in the aquarium, but could you imagine how much worse the situation would be if there were?

Special thanks to Clint, one of our local AquaNerd readers, for sharing this video with us.
