That looks like one happy turtle! I'm glad that it finally worked out for you. Couldn't you have cleaned out the inside with ammonia and water really well and still done the sw tank?

Probably not sure but I got impatient and almost threw away the tank. It took me four tries and on the last try I decided to take rusty384's advise and take apart the whole tank to seal the insides. It finally worked and with the little patience I had with it I decided to just purchase a new 90 gallon rr tank I should be receiving tomorrow. 😃

did you put any silicone between the panes of glass? How about inside the top and bottom frames? If not you may end up with a big surprise or indoor pond. I have never bought any aquariums but i have re-sealed many and have had no failures.

Yes I put between the glass, inside and out. I put on the bottom and top as well.
