Hello! Long time no post for me!
So I have this 35g hex tank that I really like. It has a mirrored back and a heavy duty wood stand. But it's starting to age. (I believe the date on the mirrored pieces on the back is 1984.) About four years it started leaking big time, and I could not determine from where. I used a razor blade to cut away the old silicone from all the seams, and used new silicone to re-seal. For somewhere between two and three years I didn't have any problems with it, until last summer when it started to leak again - this time I was able to pinpoint a specific spot about halfway up on one of the front seams. So far it has been sitting in my bedroom empty as just a storage place for some of my extra heaters, filters, etc... Is it worth trying to fix again? Would it even be possible to fix it indoors since it's too cold out now? I am in all likelihood moving into an apartment in february, and I am not sure if I want to risk it leaking a third time, although I would love to take it with me and put it in the second bedroom (which will be like an office) with 2 or 3 nice goldfish in it. It's my second biggest tank after my 55g, and I would love to have the tank space back again for more fish!
