I have the egg crates on the top of the tank bc I still didn't find 1/4 inch black mesh and I even covered the square holes I cut that have been open in the past bc that's where I though he jumped out. I guess he jumped through one of the holes

So that sump - has a teeny tiny leak in one corner so far. It's acrylic. What's the best way to get that fixed? Can I use silicone?

Use the epoxy for setting corals.run a nice piece along the area little farther on both sides of leak. Used it to mod my skimmer with new pump and a leak in my sump to.

That's a good idea, but I don't have any I didn't set any of my corals yet. Now that the goby went carpet surfing I can re-arrange my rocks without worry of anything digging, then glue down my corals. I ended up picking up some aquarium sealant. Letting it cure now. Just caught petco before they closed

I don't glue my corals either. When I got the new pump for the skimmer I had to make the hole bigger up top so I used this to fill in the bottom part of the old hole. I used it on my acrylic sump in a couple spots so if your still dripping use it. That just sounds weird.

So I put the sump in last night after letting that corner set and cure all is well with that but I had to cap off a bulk head on the lower left side of the tank (I guess for an external return or something) made sure it was nice and tight and it didn't leak at that point. Last night I fill it up get the siphon goin again for the overflow and the return going maintained a good water level salinity is matched now the cap has a small drip so since its full of water I sealed the sh*t out of it hopefully when it cures it stops dripping. This sucks.
