Recommended Posts

Hi to all those of living in earthquake likely areas and particularly in Japan. Does anyone have any suggestions/advice of how to protect our 3 tanks. They are all up on stands about waist high presently. All large tanks. Any ideas welcomed. :blink:

hey i LIVE in one of the most worst hit areas in japan what you do is seal the tank onto the surface so it cant move and then if there is one get all your goldies into the bath tub ( safest place to be in earthquakes,hurricanes etc)

I would also like to know how to "earthquake proof" my goldie tanks. It's quite rare to get tremors here in Utah, but there was a 2.6 a week ago that was centered less than 3 miles from where I live. A small tremor, but as soon as it ended, I was checking my tanks for any cracks or shifting. It had me worried, but luckily there was no damage. It did freak out my fish though.

I would quite like to be located in Hokkaido- hear its beautiful...wide streets and lots of countryside and fresh air. But no, we're on the mainland- in Tohoku, Miyagi ken. So we've both been here the same time-ish..how did we survive here this long!! (- half joking :D ) Well, Phillippines is not far- do you get back often for all that wonderful sunshine and the yummiest bananas and mangoes :) ?

I am just wondering if it would work to somehow strap or anchor your tank to a table and then anchor the table/stand to the wall (like you would a bookshelf)? I never actually thought about this before, but I live in an area where we don't get a lot of earthquakes, but we are over due for a really big one to hit (almost on top of 2 faults). Besides, it couldn't hurt for when kids are running all around the place. They are like an earthquake themselves some days.

You could always bolt the stand that the tank is on to the wall, and glue the tank to the stand. (it might cause problems if you wish to move your tank though)

how about get a custom tank and attach bullet proof glass and carbon fiber top. might not work since it is so expesive but might help from falling debris and to have it not come of just attach it to something .

Hi, I live in New Zealand the earth has been pretty shakey aswell. I made sure the stand my tank sits on is sturdy and not too high and the lid fits securely. You can't predict how big an earth quake is gonna be or when it'll strike but if after shakes are frequent i'd suggest not filling it too high to prevent spillages.
