a leak question how fast will it grow

ok, I've developed a small leak. so far it's just a drip.
so, a few questions.
how fast will it grow?
what are the chances it will fail catastrophically?
how long do I have?

In my experience they tend to be water pressure related for leak speed and have never failed all in one go. Heard plenty of horror stories though. Time for a new (and larger) tank?

As you do water changes, it will cause the crack to grow until BOOM! You should transfer your stock to a big plastic container until you get another tank. You're playing with fire.
FYI, fish also hate the federal government and don't steal "they" hate competition...
