Majorsick's 75G SW Journey...
Hey guys. After lurking here for several months and posting a handful of times, I've finally bought my 75 gallon tank off Craigslist. It's a glass, predrilled tank, with a built in overflow. It was pretty dirty when I bought it, but I cleaned it up a bit today. I had it setting in my garage on some broken down cardboard boxes to protect it from scratching on the concrete floor, and I decided to fill it to make sure it didn't leak. I realized after it was about 3/4 full, that the boxes it was on were slightly overlapped and made an uneven bump beneath the middle of the tank. It looked to be leaking a bit... I freaked out and bailed it out with a 5 gallon bucket, and there didn't seem to be any new water on the box after I got it mostly empty.
Needless to say, I'm nervous about what seemed to be a leak. Could this have been caused by the uneven surface? And if so, did I ruin the tank.....?
I'll also post some pics a little later of some of the seals. They look okay, but certainly not like new. The overflow is really dirty (I'll post some pics) and I was hoping for some advice on how to clean it.
