Yes they do my friend. I have a crab down in the sump that was a hitchhiker on an order of corals. He was a tiny thing about as big as my thumb nail and now he is about 4 inches across his shell.

My tank has a drip leak coming out the front top. I had put some silicone on the spot when i first noticed it but the tank was running when i did that. I want to repair it during a water change. I guess i need to know can i do this and leave the tank not running for 48 hrs during the cure time? If anyone has any suggestions on how to do this repair i would greatly appreciate it.

48 hours is overkill for silicone dry time. 24 at max. I would just lower the water level during a water change. Remove what silicone you can and apply new.
In times of need on plumbing that was leaking, I've applied silicone while the system was running. It was on the outside of the system, so it didn't do anything to the system and it worked as intended.
