well, i have a fairly new 5g eclipse hex with a betta in it on my desk. Right off i noticed water on the desk but not much. I figured i was sloppy filling the tank and thats the price I pay. cleaned it up, and for a day or two I got water to wick out from under it using a paper towel around the edge.
a couple days ago (it was set up like 2 weeks ago) i noticed water all around the desk behind the tank. cleaned it up, same deal as before. then yesterday, AGAIN! then today after work again. its not ALOT of water, maybe a few tablespoons at a time now, but its like theres a tiny tiny leak underneath the tank somewhere.
1) there IS a seam apparently between the sides of the tank and the bottom, yet I dont feel any water around there, though the seam is actually on the bottom of the tank (its acrylic).
2) is there a safe way to find the leak without tossing mr chavez topsey turvey trying to find it?
3) is silicone (i have aquarium safe stuff) safe to use on acrylic?
4) if i find the leak and silicone it, how long until ding chavez can go back in his tank? I have an argentine sword in there and a snail too :\
