I returned from 3 days in Vermont, to discover my tank is dripping. Unfortunately, this is about a 25-30 yr. old tank that was originally my brothers and I've had for over 10 years as my on-going octopus tank. The good news is a replacement is local and a little over $100.00. Bad news is there goes Eureka skimming past the front of the tank looking very comfortable in his settings, but little does he know what's in store for him tomorrow night! I am hoping I don't have to go through another 3 weeks of the baby hiding stage when I move him. Plan is to have the new tank at hand. Need to go get a couple more new garbage cans, one for the water and the other for all the rocks and such. I am not planning on disturbing the filter contents at all, as I don't want to upset the biological filter. I have a medium sized pet home so hopefully I can as painlessly as possable put Eureka in there until the move is complete and the tank is settled. Now that I'm looking, all the corners at the base seem to be damp. It is a 44 gal Pentagon. I'm wondering if the silicone is giving up on all the seams. Wish me luck!!! Will keep you all posted.
