Thanks for your help, everyone! All of you are so awesome!
I have another question.
So my 55g was sitting on the porch last night, leak testing. I did not use a stand, because I was able to get the tank level without it and the stand is really heavy to move. While I was at work, my dear (but aquarium-ignorant) husband let a visiting child splash the water around. So, when I arrived home 8 hours later, there was moisture under the tank. Did it seep there from all the splashing? Probably. But there's no way to know for sure that it wasn't a leak so I had to drain it, dry it, and start the whole thing over. I placed a towel under it to hopefully absorb the moisture, but there is still some wetness. I will not have any help today to move it, so my question is this- Can I safely set an old-school BRACELESS 55g tank on its side so that the bottom can dry? Or any other suggestions?
All of your help is much appreciated, I'm pretty upset about the child being allowed to play with my aquarium. Thanks for helping restore my sanity!
