“Great question! Renters insurance will not cover damage to your personal property if your fish tank leaks and causes damage to your items. Water damage to your personal property is covered for things such as appliances leaking or pipes bursting in the apartment.
If the fish tank leaks into someone else’s apartment, then your renters insurance can be used for their damages under your liability coverage. “
