Started to remove floor molding and some drywall See More


Hi everybody, Firstly thanks for taking the time to read our story and possibly help. In the last 48 hours my husband and I purchased a used 210 gallon aquarium - little did we know it would cost us our home. Experienced in the aquarium trade, we are familiar with the signs of danger. We thoroughly inspected the tank, prompted the seller, and carefully strapped down for the long ride. The seller showed evidence of a conducted a leak test conducted the previous day. Everything seemed to check... We arrive home excited to setup and re-home the fish. After an hour of struggling we manage to squeeze the tank in the center of the dining room. One hour later the tank is centered in the dining room. Two hours later the plumbing is connected. Three hours the tank is being filled to the brim... On the sixth hour at 9 PM sharp the rear of the tank blows out, and 210 gallons of water covers our entire first floor of our one story home! We have been pulling carpets all weekend and will have to replace nearly 2000 square feet, or over $2000, in carpet alone. The house is starting to smell, so the walls will be next to remove. And now with a new born on the way, we cannot afford this expense! We are trying to stay positive, we are proud for those of you who know us, but we are now asking for help from anybody who can afford to offer it in any way. And for those who cannot help financially you can help by sharing this post with others. Thank you for thinking of us during this difficult time.
