I'm setting up my first aquarium and bought a dedicated metal stand for it. However, I'm still leery about adding water since the first aquarium I bought had a crack in it. Its only a 10 gallon but I've been scouring the internet looking for ways to minimize or prevent leakage. I'm making it as level as possible but has anyone tried any of these:
- Putting a tray or reservoir under the aquarium stand to catch some of the water from a leak, should one develop
- Water sensors with alarms linked to phone
- Using sealant or something to shore up existing seams on the aquarium
If anyone knows if any of these are useful, I'd love to know.
