    There's a leak in the bottom corner of my new 5 gallon aquarium and I don't know what to do to fix it. Should I get a new tank? It is very fast (about a drop per second) so I had to drain all the water out. The tank is glass. Any suggestions?

    Get a new one! A 5 gallon is not worth fixing.

    You could probably reseal it with silicone but for 15 bucks, id just get a new one.

    I would just get a new one without the equipment a 5 gallon would cost 10-15 dollars at petco and a tube of aquarium silicone costs 20 dollars.
