SOo.. to add to the terrible day I am having, my 55 gallon tank that I JUST got off of craig's list about a week and a half ago sprung a leak. It hasn't even finished cycling! :(
Everything I read online describes a leak as a drip, barley noticeable, this was more then that. It was more like a steady stream of water escaping. The cleanup has all been taken care of, and all my cycling is now been set back to square one, I imagine.
What I was wondering is... do you guys think I should buy a new tank? or should I reseal this one? My husband wants to try to fix this one, but I am afraid of it not working. This tank looks old, the glass has a greenish tint... I am not sure if that is normal with new tanks or not. It also looks like there might be a tiny crack in the glass I just noticed that appears to have been repaired with a smudge of acrylic. I only paid 150 for the tank, stand, filter etc... so I don't feel too screwed over.
Oh, and I felt the seal, it isn't hard... it's pliable like it should be.
What should I do?
Also, is there a way to speed up the cycle when I fix this?
