Ahhhh! That's my number one fear...I guess the only thing to do is to take it all apart, leak test it to see where it is leaking and reseal it...? I probably wouldn't trust the other seams though...what brand is it?

Dame this sucks, its been like that for like 3 months. And the water level doesnt go down more as it used to before i saw this. Do you guys still think its a leak? I have a marineland filter right ontop of were this damp wood is at.

Three months huh? Then I'd think it's another problem maybe...I'd be worried that your stand is getting wet and morphing (b/c it's wood) and getting the tank at a weird level and having pressure on that one side...Kind of hard to say..maybe move the marineland filter and see if it is happening to the place you moved it and if it's dry where you moved the filter I'd say the tank is leaking.

If you want get another filter, but it looks like the water is under the ledge of the stand meaning it's going through the wood from the tank...Does the aquarium have water around the filter...if it's dry, how could it be dry on the glass, but wet on the stand...that would indicate that the filter isn't causing the leak.
