The leak is on one of the seams on the side glass. I did try to fix it but the seam was too small and ended up chipping the glass. The chip is no more than 2mm. The picture of the chip looks worse than it actually is. The chip is round and smooth with no sharp edges. The glass itself is 1/2 thick so I don't think the chip would be a structual issue. The dimension is 60x18x24. Asking 50.00

The leak was only a couple of inches down but I ended up pulling bout 12 inches of silcone out down to where there was a good bond. The first 12 inches was saturated with water. That is why I had to go down so far. So basically, you need to reseal the first 12 inches and the other 12 inches after that is fine. Hope that make sense. The hard part is trying to get new silicone between the seams.

The tank is Hagen. The dimension is 60x18x24. The tank is not tempered. No sticker. The black frame is just cosmetic. If I did not answer your question correctly, I can still take a picture for you. I live by 41st and Fraser if you want to take a look. It's outside now. I do have a steel frame finished with wood I will be selling later that was made for the tank if you are interested.
