Following the catastrophic failure of my Marineland 60g Cube aquarium, my build became a "Frankenstein's Creation" of furniture, cables, and hoses.
My "panic tank" build is as follows:
29gal "Clear for Life" acrylic tank
CPR CS90 Overflow
Eshopps R-100 Sump
Sea Lettuce, Chaeto, and Mangrove Refugium
Eshopps PSK-100 Protein Skimmer
Aquatop 36W UV Sterilizer
2x Kessil a160we Lights w/ A-series controller
Stand: My old dining room table

Had a 150+ tank when I was a kid. It cracked in the middle of the night. Things went in brute cans quickly! My dad moved so fast he let the carpet nem get him.
My wife made saving things possible. I was at work when it happened. A loud “crack”, then the rush of water. She started pumping down water to a couple of smaller tanks after slowly the leak with tearaid tape. I got home and was able to immediately move corals over to the smaller tanks without losing any (to the accident, anyway).
We now have new tile floors ready for our new tanks.
