Finding the leak

I bought an old tank off of CL. Cute lil 10g for my fry. Had it set up a week with no issues and then one night came home to a wet floor. It's not gushing, so I have no idea where it is leaking from.

Any tricks for figuring out which seal is leaking? Is it okay to only fix one seal or do I need to reseal the whole tank? I have read lots of posts here about which silicone to use and how to do it so I think I've got that part down, but any helpful hints would be appreciated!

Youre going to have to reseal the whole tank. Just be sure to strip all the old sealant off and clean it with rubbing alcohol.
