 I  am  facing  tank  breakage  of  bottom  glass  of  my  18L"9W"14H"  aquarium.  Since  2.5  months  it  has  broken  third  time   Crying or Very sad   Crying or Very sad  .  Why  this  is  happening  ?  Even  I  put  it  on  thermocol  ,  supported  with  thick  cloth.  Plz  help  me  to  find  out  the  actual  problem.  I  used  5  mm  glass.

 Hi  Kapil,
 
 This  picture  does  not  help  in  any  way.  What  kind  of  stand  is  that?  Is  it  a  metal  stand?
 
 Even  if  the  surface  is  smooth  and  the  stand  is  not  level  or  sturdy,  the  tank  can  break.

 Hello,
 
 Please  provide  complete  details  and  not  just  a  closeup  of  the  tabletop.
 Take  pics  of  the  broken  tank  and  also  the  complete  pic  of  the  table  with  the  tank  on  it.
 
 I  am  assuming  from  looking  at  the  pics  you  have  provided,  the  surface  of  the  table  is  not  the  issue.  Did  you  check  if  the  tank  was  level  with  the  ground  before  filling  water?  Any  large  size  rock  in  your  setup?
 
 The  tank  size  is  not  huge  enough  to  give  you  problems  unless  it  was  constructed  improperly.
 
 The  previous  2  times  it  cracked,  did  you  replace  the  bottom  glass  alone  or  was  the  tank  completely  reconstructed?  
 
 Please  provide  these  details  for  members  to  help  you  better.
 
 regards

 While  that  picture  is  of  no  help,  I  think  its  the  surface  that  is  creating  the  problem.  Since  it's  the  bottom  that's  breaking  each  time...  there  has  got  to  be  something  wrong  with  the  surface  you're  placing  it  on.  OR  (other  probability)  you're  putting  some  really  heavy  &  sharp  objects  in  the  tank.
 for   a  tank  of  that  size  5mm  glass  should  be  sufficient.

 I  haven't  put  any  heavy  rocks  with  sharp  edges.  Here  is  pic.  Of  my  stand.
 
 Repaired  tank.  I  repaired  it  usung  Araldite  klear.  Whether  it  is  efficient  ?  
 I  havn't  change  d  the  glass,  I  just  pasted  tube  from  inside  and  outside.

 @  Kapil,
 
 When  you  had  the  tank  on  top  of  the  stand,  did  you  have  any  thermocole  sheet  beneath  the  tank?  Or  did  you  just  placed  the  tank  on  top  of  the  stand?
 
 The  repair  work  that  you  have  done  now  will  not  work.  The  glass  will  not  hold  the  water  pressure.  The  glass  will  again  break  and  leak  from  the  same  place.  You  will  have  to  replace  the  entire  glass.
 
 Since  the  glass  had  broken  from  top  to  bottom,  even  if  you  glue  with  araldite,  the  glass  will  not  stay  together  due  to  the  water  pressure.

 After  rapairing,  I  filled  tank  entirely,  for  more  than  24hrs.and  don't  found  any  licking  issues.  I  am  also  not  sure  that  it  will  work  fine.  Let's  hope  to  go  well.  Smile

 http://www.theaquatools.com/building-your-aquarium
 
 I  have  never  used  anything  less  than  8  mm  but  thats  because  of  larger  tanks.

 Technical  point:-
 
 1000%  ITS  YOUR  TABLE.  Now  do  1  thing.  got  to  a  hardware  shop  and  buy  2  "L"  beams  36"  long.  place  them  on  the  edges.  place  your  tank  on  top  of  the  "L"  beam.  this  is  the  right  remedy.  
 
 Or...  you  can  make  a  new  stand  of  iron  "beams"  which  will  not  bend.
 
 
 Spiritual  Point
 
 On  spiritual  side  of  the  story,  if  your  tank  is  breaking  now  and  then  ,  dont  place  it  in  that  area.  
 
 If  this  area  is  extreme  south  end  of  your  home,  it  will  break  again  and  again.  
 
 I  had  a  12mm  glass  tank  on  the  south  end  of  my  house,  it  broke-up  4  times.  But  the  last  time  the  glass  cracked  and  water  gushed  out  like  a  storm  in  my  house.  Later  I  found  out  that  some  times  "1  in  a  million"  you  need  to  apply  spiritual  norms  if  the  mishaps  are  continuous.
 
 God  speaks  you  know...but  in  actions.  so  shift  your  tank  position  into  some  other  corner.  Thumb Up
