Silicone Air Bubbles replace or is it ok

FishSupreme

There seem to be a cluster of bubbles in the Silicone near the bottom. I’ve never had a problem with stuff like this but I’ve heard horror stories of tanks leaking. It’s a 30g

How old is the tank? If it's unfilled, you can buy aquarium sealant, stick it in caulk gun, and do an extra coat before filling it to be safe.

It’s about a year old and it’s filled with a current occupant. I should’ve notice it sooner but being at the bottom in the back I didn’t. The occupant is one goldfish. I’m hoping to rehome them as I need to focus on scholl.

Then just keep an eye on it until you rehome the fish. If it gets bigger, you'll either need to drain the tank and fix it or get a new tank.
