Checking the tanks this morning like usual and noticed a leak in our large tank! The front right seam is pooched I'm pretty sure. The water enters the tank near the top then dribbles down the whole length of the seam and exits near the bottom. We lowered the tank this morning so its no longer leaking. Should we remove the whole side panel? Is there any way of fixing the one seam without wrecking the other two? I'm thinking the whole end panel will need to be removed and resealed...this will be a huge job
Here is the seam that is leaking
Here is a close up of where it is leaking from (red circle)
as you can see the whole seem is filled with air. Here is how the other seam on the left side of the tank looks, notice how it has no air and is sealed tightly.
Here is the pond/bin that my parents picked up today to put the rock, sand, and fish in. Some fish might go into the sump too.
We plan on emptying the whole tank tomorrow, I'm hoping for zero fish losses. I will keep this posted and hopefully get more pics tomorrow.
Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions.
