    A used fishtank I bought 3 weeks ago started leaking 10days ago... I saved the fishes and got silicon sealant. I am quite new to it, and not really confident of re-sealing it, anyone I can contact? Or better to buy another "used" tank?

    I am also scared of this tank leaking again and causing damage.

    All used tank when no water will definitely leak because the silicone sealant have not touch water too long. Only thing is get a new one. Or remove all sealant and rebuild it from scratch.

    No I bought over the tank second day after decommissioned. And it stayed without a leak for 10days before it started leaking... One random evening. Started slowly and the flow increased very fast... Before I could do anything at least 10liters of water was on the floor.

    Well I think before it was decommissioned. It was left with out water. I too had small leak but it was second hand within 2 months it leak too. Since repair for me was not an option I bought new one and give the old one away.
