Possible tank crack
I recently just set up a brand new 29 gallon tank and has had water in it for about 5 days now. This is my first experience with fish/aquariums. It is on a level stand and the tank itself is level. Today, I noticed a very very tiny crack on the front pane of glass (about 1/32"). This is new today, I would have noticed it last night as I was keeping a close eye on the new fishes. I am very concerned that this will expand and cause a big accident/leak. Should I empty the tank and get a new one? I don't want to take any chances. This is unfortunate because I just added the first 4 fish to the tank last night.

As long as you have warrenty or could replace it for free I would do so...If youd have to buy a new one full price, you should...but I wouldnt.

I replaced the tank. I think it is a crack since when I shined a flashlight from the side, I could see depth of it into the glass. At this point, the crack was tiny, but my fear was that it would grow and break the tank. I figured it would be worth the $50 for my own sanity's sake and to keep water and fish from flooding my apt.
