I have the funds for a new tank, but I have my place on the market and a lot of people have interest on it so far. I don't want to get anything only to find out that I sold the place; I'm planning on getting a 400g plus for my new home if all goes well. Thanks for your input though.

Yeah that’s why I suggested a large plastic pond from HD. Keep the fish in there till you get your new tank. Can leave them in there till you move.

Hopefully all goes well with the sale and looking forward to seeing the new build

Here is another option for other people that might end up in this thread because their tank is leaking

Bracing
empty the tank
strip off all the silicone in all of the corners
clean it well
Get 1”-2” wide x 3/8”-1/2” (thick) strips of glass
and silicone them in all of the corners
Let it cure for a week
This will make a new bond between the two panes of glass and seal the leak at the same time

It’s actually a 270g with a 75g sump; it’s all starphire made by Miracles aquarium. The dimensions are 72x36x27. Thanks.

Probably not as the tank is about 12 years old.
