Silcone for leaks...?
Can you use aquarium silicone to fix a leak? I just noticed my 5 gallon has a very slow leak...it is brand new too...If I can't fix it PetStmart I hope will take it back...
Yes you can. You can also use any 100% silicone product if you want to save money. Remove the loose silicone. Make sure the area is dry. Use a hair drier if necessary. Make sure the glass is clean and free of algae. Let silicone dry for at least 48 hours before refilling the tank.

Give Petsmart a call. If they'll take it back just take it back. You can fix a tank but if you just got it you're better off with one that didn't start with a leak.
Watch my tank progress from Craigslist salvage to fishy habitat: Aaron's Tank
The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
