The situation occurred on the facility’s second floor where the 13,000 gallon saltwater tropical glass tank broke early Sunday morning.  Both floors of casino gambling had to be shut down. 

“Thank God nobody got hurt, but we're looking at a few days of cleanup," General Manager Tim Ritvo was quoted as saying.

The facility was expected to lose substantial revenue during the vital Labor Day Weekend holiday.

As for the fish, all were saved.
