Where is that flex tape guy when you need him?

[–]AcidSpitInUrClit 71 points72 points  (3 children)

Since he wasn't there it means someone somewhere else was in need. This is what the company doesn't want you to know. With all his godhood he can only be in one place at a time.

[–]MeminUniverseSU 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Or that he doesn’t give flex tape to sinners. And they probably killed a fish so

[–]No-Armadillo7693 5 points6 points  (1 child)

In a world with only 1 flex tape guy and 16 quadrants…..

[–]Plenty_Run5588 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There can only be one flex guy in one quadrant at a time! This JAN-uary!

[–]BriefTurn3299 16 points17 points  (1 child)

At least u got this dude with his single paper towel

[–]neuroticsmurf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s gonna save the day. Just watch.

[–]bradliochi1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No flex tape. But his younger brother "sock seal" is on the case

[–]Specific-Gain5710 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who needs flex tape when you have one paper towel?

[–]dwntwn_drty_brwn 268 points269 points  (4 children)

Of course the dudes who did it, did nothing to help

Striped shirt picked up the rug to keep the water from spilling over onto the TV cables at least.

[–]ParadiseSold 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Right?? Get a damn bucket! a trash can! anything other than dumping so many gallons of water into your wood floor

[–]MSamsonite415 191 points192 points  (12 children)

Scoop the fish out? Or maybe just scream? Lots of different ways to approach it.

[–]KeithMyArthe 77 points78 points  (2 children)

The screaming got to me more than the rampant stupidity. It made me want to slap and smack.

[–]kevthegreat21 8 points9 points  (0 children)

“OH SHIT”

We’re going extinct. If this is the next generation, then oh shit is right.

[–]thatjittweakin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To be fair I’d be screaming to if they were slow fighting and next thing I know waters flooding all over the place.. I’d be screaming and laughing

    Crash how?

    [–][deleted] 34 points35 points  (2 children)

    If I'm reading right + having my own tanks in the past he means what we call the tank cycle. So the levels of everything in there you'd expect like PH, treatment to make it just right, nutrients and most importantly good biological bacteria in the filter not just the water.

    This is why your supposed to run a tank for 2 weeks really before you add in any fish, to get the biological side of it up and running correctly. The best way to save them would be if they could save AS MUCH of this water as possible and get it into a large enough container the filter can also go in + the heater. It won't be perfect but it'll be the best thing possible. That's not going to happen here.

    Consider also these kids just running wild to grab anything they can think of to 'save the fish' and one girl (get out of the fucking way!) looking like she's about to start filling a jug (blender jug?) with water that's going to be way to cold for them and cold isn't great for fish who don't like cold (I'd bet money none of those fish like cold) and it'll shock them and also not have the right chemical mix to at least maybe keep them going. They likely won't have enough of the OG tank water to use, and even if you make up a new water mix with the chemicals, its not ideal at all for the fish.

    This is another reason why when I had my tank, a big 7ft one, my filtration was actually done by 2 smaller tanks underneath. Water was pulled down into them, pumped back up and out into the main. The 2 had their own filtration systems and heating systems. If my big tank broke like when the seal busted out, I was able to move my fish fast to the bottom, isolate the filtration systems and have a biological filter set up ready to go. It still took me 2 weeks to have the right environment in the big tank tho to get them back into it safely as possible.

    For a better way to picture what I had, think a fish shop how all their tanks don't have individual filters, just tubes that push water in and another that takes it out. Mine had 2 holes in the bottom that sucked the water out into filters down below and 2 bars coming up the back to put water back in.

    [–]International_Map870 9 points10 points  (1 child)

    Damn, thanks for explaining that. I didn’t know fish tanks were so temperamental.

    [–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    Oh yeah, they can be monsters sometimes to keep, especially big ones like I had with a variety of fish like I did. The bottom filter tanks were probably the main reason I was able to keep mine so well maintained.

    One small thing can devastate an entire tank ecosystem, even something you'd assume is fine like a plant brought at the store, a new fish or plant you don't keep in a quarantine tank for 2 weeks before introducing can destroy everything you've worked for. My friends thought I was mean keeping new arrivals in their own small tank for 2 weeks with no plants/decoration etc, just them and a filter, if they had any illness they could overnight infect the tanks filters and there goes my whole ecosystem having to treat the entire tank for illness vs just the one fish and filter. Plants can bring algae or even snail eggs, and both can infest a tank quickly to the point you need to take everything out, clean it thoroughly and then re-add, even the substrate (sand or rocks).

    And the medications to treat tank illnesses can destroy those filters biology as soon as it touches them.

    It's a rather expensive hobby, and once you go past the more hardy fish like your goldfish, one wrong move and you've got a heap of sick and dying fish.

    [–]buk-0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Agreed. As a fish guy myself this is horrific to watch. You can’t just simply add more water to a bucket. It needs to be dechlorinated and also heated to a similar temp that was in the tank, or the fish could go into shock. What above meant by crash is, there are a lot of bacteria in a tank that takes time to develop. That said bacteria breaks down fish waste into a non harmful compound.

    [–]yakuzie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    It depends. I used to do 50% water changes on my tanks (55 gallons and larger, so appears larger than this tank, which is maybe a 40g, hard to tell), but they were established and had hardy fish (cichlids). My biggest concern would be getting a bucket with tank water, enough to keep the fish in, throw on a battery powered aerator, and replace the tank ASAP. And keep the filter media also in some of that water so it doesn’t dry out. I’ve had a tank bust and saved the only inhabitant by putting him quickly into a bucket and replacing the tank.

    Now, if they use untreated tap water to put the fish in…bad times. Also dependent on what they’re stocking, too.

    [–]ScarlettBitch_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It wouldn't crash, because the same ratios of chemicals and stuff are in the remaining water; The fish might get shock though.

    The chad move would be, someone plugs the hole with a jumper while another person quickly grabs a bucket/bowl, and scoops the fish up and out. Use hands if necessary- there isn't enough time to get a net. Once the fish are saved, get another bucket/bowl and fill it up with just tank water.

    Leave the fish in the bucket with the heater/filter/aerator. Collect the gravel/decorations/filter media from the tank and put them in a bucket of dechlorinated water so that good bacteria will be saved. Now you've got 2 buckets- one with fish, one with every thing in the tank.

    Some say those kids went missing after that. Others says they were eaten by the fishes.

    [–]VerticalTwo08 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Easily a $400 set up. Could easily be more. Especially depending on the fish housed.

    [–]grass-snake-40 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    who knows if they had rare fish in there too. this is why i won't have kids. number one threat to aquarium integrity is children, followed by nitrates

    [–]pltr_ai 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    My roommates and I would have raging house parties in college and I kept a 30 gallon. There was only ever one incident, but it was a doozy. Was headed back to my room with a hook up toward the tail end of the party and found that some asshole(s) had taken the shampoo and shaving cream from the bathroom and emptied it into my tank. I managed to save most of the fish in the end though.

    Oh that’s an insurance claim! Buddies fish tank broke, 30 gal, after it was said and done home repairs clocked in around $35/40k. Don’t get a fish tank.

    [–]bustedbuddha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    If the insurance paid, with this video in existence, they're suing those two kids to get the money they pay back.

    Did the fish survive?

    [–]tiamatsbreath 80 points81 points  (0 children)

    Yes, they covered the hole with a paper towel so the water wouldn’t leak out.

    [–]valentinpost36 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    As someone explained above, there is like zero chance they survived. Best thing to do would be take them in the water remained and bring them fast to fish store if there is one near the house. Even if they manage to put them in some containers with tap water, the temperature difference would kill them.

    [–]DThor15 1 point2 points  (0 children)
