Is this a miracle, or should I be worried?
So my new 2.5 gallon had a leak, and I was pretty sure it was from the bottom because there wasn't water anywhere else. So I re-siliconed the entire bottom. Filled it up and it still leaked. But when I was taking water out, it stopped. Then I realized all of the silicone was pealing off the top corners and the water was just running down the metal trim. So I patched that up. Waited for 48 hours and when I filled it it was fine. But 15 min later it came back. I went sailing for four hours and when I came back, no leak and the outside was dry! I have no idea how this worked, but am I in the green to start cycling, or should I hold off?
Also, does anybody have any idea on where to get a female scarlet badis? I have looked high and low and can't find one. I looked on aquabid, liveaquaria (only males), etc. I did look on my LFS's wholesalers list (to see if they could custom order them) and they had them. But both the picture of the male and female had fin rot, and I don't want to be stuck with fish that have some disease. I plan on a M/F pair in the 2.5. Thanks!
