Also it says "A safety expert said: "According to experts' preliminary investigation, the main cause of the incident is that the material used to make the aquarium ruptured under low temperatures after long-time use."
So far it's looking like the main cause was poor maintenance.
Just like the rides in China's amusement parks. They show severe age that need refurbishment, yet they never have the time to do so. Some of the guys at Theme Park Review pointed out that they feared that these rides could break at any moment now. Aquariums are no different, as we can see in this article.
