    That's the reason it's been in my closet a couple years I have a 10g now but I want to restore this one enough to hold water. I didn't even think of YouTube. I did try the hot water trick... Didn't work unfortunately.

    I don't know John's handle on here, you may have to just check periodically? His fish were dying in the sun, I picked some up and found one to be a geo then found him

    A friend used to collect and repair these tanks. She disassembled them, removed all the old sealant, and reassembled with black silicone. I don't know what brand she used.

    Why go through the trouble, 10G tanks are cheap if you buy them new! Are you trying to restore this tank due to its uniqueness? If not i would not waste my time. A good idea is to display succulents in them :)

    When I strip each female I count every egg and or free swimmers and keep an excel spreadsheet with a tank ID, species name, quantity and whether it is a fry or if they are adults. No of course some eggs may not be fertile so I count the fry once they are free swimmers and update my spreadsheet accordingly. It's the accountant/auditor in me.

    My metal bound slate bottom 29 no longer had visible tar when I got it, it had visible silicone on the interior, I think, which I scraped off with a razor blade and did a new bead of clear aquarium silicone at all interior joints. NOW it worked for a year or 2, then I moved the tank and somehow got a minor leak again, so I did this a couple of times a couple of years apart, and it had a small leak problem before I put it in dry dock in the shed...

    DO NOT REMOVE THE TAR!!!! Fill the tank up with the hottest water you have to heat the tar up to make it tacky and it will self seal itself. Chunks of the tar on my slate bottom were missing so I had to reseal using silicone. The silicone failed immediately to adhere to the slate bottom. I had to custom order a piece of glass to fit over the slate and silicone it that way.

    The RTV silicone is extremely sticky, it might be your best bet. It also comes in black and clear.

    We're getting ready to move. As a result, I need to find new homes for my last two fish so I can break down their tank and put it in storage. Two Iridescent shark catfish. (2 for $3) I estimate them to be about 5" long, but they are slender so they don't really look that big in the tank. They are pretty chill and just like to cruise around the tank. I currently have them in my 50 gal but I need to break that down. (I tried to...

    All of the fish were delivered today to my office and all 23 made it alive into the tank. Overall, very happy with everything. They are a little small, but I enjoy seeing fish grow out and they are near the same size as the fish which I had delivered last weekend. Not the greatest pics as this was taken about half an hour after adding them to the tank, so the colors should start popping soon. If if anyone wants the breeders contact info,...
