Oh no! It leaks!

I've been so excited about getting a 135 gallon tank for my loaches to swim around in. They're just too crowded where they are now.

Now I'm bummed. My new tank has a leak. The guy who sold it to me has aggreed to take it back if I can't fix it, but I'd really like to keep it and make it work.

Anyone have success repairing a leaky tank? Care to share your secrets? I've made one repair attempt already and it didn't work. I tried again, and should be able to start filling it to test the new repair tonight. I've got my fingers crossed, but would appreciate any tips anyone has.



p.s. ever try filling and emptying 135 gallons by carrying buckets of water? That was a workout! I bought a hose/siphon setup the next day. =)
