Gulfstream Casino will reopen Friday after a 13,000 gallon fish tank broke, forcing the casino to close for clean up.
The grand opening happened at 10 a.m.
On Sept. 2nd, the 13,000 gallon tank broke, spilling 10,000 gallons of salt water onto the casino floor. The water caused extensive damage to the carpet, drywall and slot machines.
"We're very excited to be back open," said Mike Couch, Dir. of Gaming. "The team really came together in about seven days to dismantle everything on the casino floor, remove all the damage material -- the carpet, the drywall -- and put new carpet down, re-paint, and get everything cleaned up and put back together."
All the fish inside the tank are OK, but for now, the tank will remain empty. It hasn't been decided when the tank will be up and running again.
The ribbon-cutting will also kick off a week of giveaways at the casino.
