    I can't get to it. It's the bottom panel that's leaking...ugh. It's not horrible. I noticed it around 2 am last night and the water line has gone down about 3/4". But I'm worried it will escalate.

    But good news! My fiance called and he is able to go pick up a new tank, stand, sand, etc. right now! So we can get this taken care of tonight. PHEW!

    I think a 40 breeder is a good one to get. They actually hold closer to 44 gallons when empty.

    Oh man, sorry to hear about the leak. Hopefully you'll soon be the proud owner of a nice 40B though :)
