Testing for leaks- how long?

The title pretty much speaks for itself. I have a tank sitting in my garage, and I just filled it up with water tonight. So far everything looks good. How long should I let it sit there to test for leaks?

If it shows no sings in 24 hours I believe any leak will clog itself as long it's not a crack or a void in the sealant. Glass or plastic?
