Trying to figure out how this puddle of water made it to the carpet. My bf seems to think it was during a water change. My hopes are just that then a slow leak. We found sand underneath our carpet. I may be in a lot of trouble after this. I'm hoping I don't have to tear down my tank. This really sucks big ones!!!
Line around the bottom of your tank, sump amd wrap the plumbing with toilet paper or napkins. Make sure they won't drop into anything, then keep an eye on it and see if any get wet.
I hope you pull through this. ..the sand is kinda weird though...
