Leaking Tank

 What is the first thing you do after coming home the night after making a new fish tank? Fill it full of water of course! It leaks. Not bad though. I filled it with 3 gallons of water to see if it was water tight, and I had a slow leak. about 1 drip a second. Not to bad considering how messed up the silicone turned out after my trying to smooth it too late into the curing process.
 So, I cut the sealent out. I left it assembled, just cut out the inside silicone and trimed up the outside as well. I re-sealed it tonight. I am thinking tonight I put down a good bead and it should be 100% water tight now. It all LOOKS much better at least.
