The only way I know of to test for leaks is this:

1. Dry off the tank and surrounding area
2. Place DRY paper towels around the base of the tank
3. Leave for 24 hours
4. If there's water on the paper towels, that's where your leak is. There can be multiple at once.

Also, if the potential leak seems bad (water level lowering quickly), you should move the fish to a temporary holding tank while you fix the permanent one or replace it.
