I have a 130 gallon Aquavim bowfront that had a steady drip leak develop late last week. After all the sand was removed, no cracks were found so I believe it's a seal issue. Has anyone ever resealed a tank? Do you have thoughts around the success ratio or tips or is it just a waste of time? Thanks.

i have resealed a few tanks, but only up to 50 gal with success.
you need to remove the old silicone with a razor, clean and reseal.
do the whole tank, not just where its leaking. silicone wont adhere to dry silicone.
