Those size tanks are cheap enough, so I wouldn't risk it.
If I'm going to get a new tank I'd go with acrylic, I'm not a fan of glass after my experiences. That being said, would a simple tank fill->check for leaks be enough to rule out a bad seal? Even then I'd imagine some sort of aquarium approved caulk is out there that I could try.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not against getting a new toy, I'd love to get a 50 gallon acrylic tank, but I'd rather atleast try to work with I have so I can justify to my wallet that I've done everything within reason.
That and I prefer small fish. My ideal tank:
- 4 guppies, 3 females 1 male
- 8-10 neon tetras
- 5 zebra danio
- 5 white cloud minnow
- 3-4 bronze corys
According to the advisor I could fit all that in a 29 gallon but it'd be nearing max stock capacity.
