Didn't lose all the water because I was home when it started leaking. This works out ok though because now I can wait until the tusk is bigger than get another lionfish. Wifey already agreed that if the 125 is salvageable by my lfs that I can sell it and he stand and go 180/220. Im truly glad the tusk survived because it changes my entire attitude

Yea it'd do the same to me. You should go as large as possible so you'll save money upgrading in the long run.

Well lfs can't fix the tank ... so im gonna attempt it myself (even though I truly don't feel I have the skills to do so) if that doesn't work, guess ill have to build a few stands to sell so I can get a new tank

hey brent, these are the vids that helped me. i watched them all and any other related vid i could find over and over until i got comfortable with the thought of cutting my tank apart. at least youve got those 10 gallons to practice with.

i tried the tape trick to get a clean line but found that if i just trusted my finger and didnt go crazy with the silicone all went well. idk if you still have the pics from my 75gallon build handy but you can see the mistakes i made there. and final result. probably easier if you just go to the photobucket album from there to skip all the "chat room banter"

anyway...





also go to youtube and search "how to reseal an aquarium" it will pull up all relevant vids. i think i watched them all. well most.

there are little plastic silicone bead helpers that lowes and home depot sell, they're only a couple of bucks.
