So today I faced an aquarium nightmare. Somehow my tank leaked onto the floor. Thankfully there was still some tank water, so I was able to save all my fish, plants, and I’ve also saved my filter media. The fish are currently in a small tank with a sponge filter. I’ve put a towel over them so they stay calm and added both stress coat and seachem prime. I’ve figured out the leak is from the bottom rim of the tank in multiple spots, which I plan to fix with silicone. My stand is completely ruined, in fact the surface, being wood, is completely unleveled. I think over time the surface underneath, due to being exposed to water (I’m not the cleanest person when I do water changes) slowly unleveled from beneath, causing the leak, and now that the tank is leaked it’s completely ruined. I can level the stand by carving the wood, but overtime this may happen again. I would rather get another stand. However, I’ve noticed many stands online are made of wood, and they don’t specifically say they have any coatings or such. The reviews also indicate wood damage with water contact. Is there something I could use to protect the stand from water damage?
