How big is the aquarium?
Where is the leak?

If it's a small 10g easier to just replace only $10 at walmart.
For a larger tank depending where leak is, best to redo the whole seal.

Is the tank full and in use?
What size is it?
Where is the leak?
The best way to stop a leak is to tear down the tank and resilicone the inner seams.

:hmm3grin2orange: Its better than rushing to get your fish out and having a bunch of water everywhere!
Have you got an emergency plan in place?
Empty clean buckets or a rubbermaid tub is the most important besides a shop vac!

My emergency plan is to give the guy living in apartment below an umbrella, and then run back up and start transferring water/fish to another tank/bucket/bins! Oh and I got some hockey tape which works well enough in wet situations.
