Help!!! Small leak in my tank!!!

Does anyone know of a quick fix for a small leak without breaking down the whole tank. Do aquarium services that come out and work on tanks fix this ? is it really expensive. I just got up and running a couple of weeks ago and everything was perfect. This sucks!

A small leak is not a "quick fix" issue. A small leak can cause huge problems. If you don't want to tear down the tank and reseal, the only thing I can think of would be epoxy, not even sure if that would work though. A tear down and reseal is the best and safest option IMO.

Whew! False Alarm!! I did my first water change today and put a little too much water in it. My skimmer was overflowing a little causing a slow leak down the tank. Took about a half gallon out and problem solved!
