How do I reseal tank.

Hi eveeryone....

Didn't really know where to put this question, so I hope this section will be all right.

I just got a new 46 gallon salt water tank up and everything is fine.

I wanted a bigger tank anyhow but what hurried me up was that my old 29 gallon tank started to leak into my electrical circuits while I was home and heard the "popping" ......so new saltwater tank.

QUESTION: how do I recaulk/reseal the old 29 gallon tank. I plan to use it for a freshwater tank. Do I remove the old silicon.....put new silicon over the old?.....what kind of caulking/silicon should I use.....I have Home Depot hardware store here.

Thanks in advance for the advice.
