I left for work in the early afternoon, and my little nephew came over to the house today. The cliff notes version is when I got home my tank was leaking! The glass has a spider-like crack along the side. It's not a fast leak, but I ran to the local wal-mart and I only had enough for a 20 gallon (with the stand). So I set it up and placed a good portion of my gravel and cichlid stones, not to mention, the same filter cartridges from the established 55 to the 20. So hopefully that'll speed up the cycle. I think it may last another day or so at most with the leak.
