Walmer Tilapia Hatchery

Major disaster on Sunday. I heard a crashing noise. When I got to the hot house the glass aquarium had broken and the red tilapia breeding group were all over the ground flapping around. Managed to save them but I think we lost the fry the broody mother was carrying in her mouth.

I bough this tank second hand about a year ago for about R200.00. Just to replace the broken glass would cost me about R600.00. I t does not seem worth it. I have never built a fishtank before and the chances of me getting it wrong are quite big. Perhaps I will live without the glass aquarium. (for now)
