I had a 46gal bow front in storage this past summer in SC and the sealent peeled and cracked in places it was a AGA. I think It was the humidity and heat that caused it, because it got real bad down there this year. Would it of been just a bad batch of sealent, or what.
Sealants will still peel off in time when the tank hasn't been used for long. The best you could do is replace sealant for precautions. You don't want waking up in the morning with a flooded living room, do you?
