The security cameras at a US aquatic shop caught the moment that a huge aquarium burst, emptying around 1250 gal. of water all over the floor.

Iowa Pet Foods and Aquatics, in West Des Moines, were greeted by 5cm/2" of standing water after the fish tank collapsed last Thursday. Luckily there was no livestock in the aquarium at the time and no one was injured.
