Kindof unrealistic to assume that anyone will answer you on New Years day (or even the day after)! Hopefully they'll be on top of their game first thing tomorrow morning. Is there anything you can do to stem the tide? A little hot glue may be just enough to keep it from getting worse (assuming that it is acrylic safe, yada yada).

Good luck getting things back in order. Hopefully that was enough to get you through the rest of the year without any more bad luck! Bambino & Melissa feeling better yet? Usually that first course of AB is enough to make them feel better!

Wow, sorry to hear about the leak..You should post a pic, maybe someone has a similar experience. Though Im not sure it would help if you end having to replace the whole thing. I know I'll have my fingers crossed for ya.

He just called me. According to him (no big deal) He is sending me the correct welder/glue for acrylic. I will have to shut down the overflow/sump and dry all the water from the overflow and scrap off coralline. Make sure surface is clean and dry with hair dryer. Apply this stuff and let it set up for 1 hr and in his words it will be fixed. Keep in mind this is the small overflow box approx 10gal that is directly connected to the back of the tank. Still not going to be a easy task.

I imagine he is just going to send you some WELD 4 with a needle tip applicator...It will set up in minutes. might want to have some type of bar clamp handy (assuming its something you can get a clamp on)

RichT (www.reefgadgets.com) is one of our NJRC members and I think he uses weldon 16. I think the number indicates the thickness so whichever one he sends I'm sure will be the *right* one. That's some great stuff and it is easily able to seal minor issues with acrylic. Good luck with the fix! I'm glad he got back to you!

Just so you know ....The number of the weld on indicates how fast the "glue" bonds and cures
