haha i thought you might have done that. It is probably just some spilled water from putting the rock in and such. Whenever i do water changes there seems to always be water in that exact spot. Hard to dry up too cause its in a small crack. Hope it's not a leak!

Nope, I have a leak but it only seems to be when the filter is running. It's coming from the back on the right side. I'm gonna drain the water and pull it out and see whats up.

This is def. not good. :-(

I've got it filled again and pulled out from the wall. I;m running the filter to see if I can locate the leak.

Maybe its the filter splashing water...haha just a hope. At least it is near the top, which i guess doesn't matter if you have to replace the whole seal.

I used silicone that I had here to seal up the back where it was dripping. i will get aquarium silicone tomorrow and do the inside part. It's only when the water hits a certain level that it leaks. The guy I bought it from didnt have it filled all the way to the top. lol grrr..

It looks to be a seal. Where the top of the filter compartment on the right meets the top of the tank underneath. When I run the filter my water rises and it leaks.

So I left the pump running overnight and NO leaks this morning! I guess I still should do the inside with silicone too before I drain and move it back into place.
Since I was bored I re did the rocks, looking better?
