Tank Leaked

Hey all. I had the quintessential disaster happen to me where all the water out of my 72gal reef leaked out while on vacation. The only thing I was able to save was my false perc clownfish and a couple crabs. Now, I'm trying to figure out what to do with the tank. It's a 72gal oceanic bowfront that I don't have the receipt for and I'm sure is out of warranty. The tank does not have an obvious crack in it....I think it was a slow leak out of of one of the seams at the bottom.

I'm going to get out of the hobby due to time and work constraints so here's my question. Is there anything I can do to perhaps repair the tank and sell it? Unfortunately, the tank stand has some significant warping (safety issue). Any thoughts would be appreciated.

After contacting Oceanic. And you have the abilities the reseal the tank I would completely strip and reseal all inside seams. http://www.aquariumadvice.com/articl...q=2&fldAuto=36 If not find a LFS or glass store that will reseal it.

You could also post it on Craigs List as is. If you lived closer to me (1920.6 miles) I would love to have a bowfront.
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
