@fastfossil: not really... i only get to see my friend on fridays (no work!) and last i heard, the guys who made the tank were once again attempting to reseal the inside using better silicone. (GE/momentive RTV 108) someone recommended we dry the thing up, remove the old seal and rub the thing down with denatured alcohol to make sure nothing effs up the new silicone layer. *crossing fingers*
@thincat: ugh. that is baaad news. they're absolutely hesitant to smash things up because the room the tank is built in is almost finished and just waiting for furnishing. plus the leak source is doing it's ****edest not to be detected. we did the dye thing, and the laying paper thing, and nothing. it'll sit for a few days, then we'll wake up --boom---leak. they've even considered condensation as it'd been suggested somewhere else, but no dice --save for that one specific area, everything is dry as a bone. dismantling the structure is the last resort.
