Aquarium bursts in shopping centre in Shanghai0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:45 pm

On the 18th December, an aquarium burst open at a shopping centre in Shanghai.

Three lemon sharks, as well as many turtles and fish were killed as the glass shattered without any prior warning, injuring sixteen people, and destroying a nearby cosmetics stall. It has been found that this was caused by both low temperatures and a weak choice of materials, which is quite shocking when it was only installed two years ago, bringing up questions about whether we should be focusing on money or safety more when building things.

The first aquariums ever used were small marble tanks under beds, during the time of the Roman Empire. Over the years aquariums developed more and more, as the desire to house fish indoors became greater. It wasn’t until the 19th century when the first modern aquarium made of glass was designed though, made by Robert Warrington. 

This is a shocking incident and poses questions about health and safety with cheaply built aquariums, but what are your views? To share them click “Read More & Comment”.
