i think I have a problem!

I've had my Nano 12 gl Dx for a few months now. Since its been set up it has had some salt creep on the left side back where the sump starts. I really didn't think a whole lot about it. Just thought that I was filling it a little too full.

 

Today I noticed that there was much more salt creep and I started looking at it more closely. It appears to be leaking right where the front of the sump starts at the top. Rubbing my finger along the side there are a couple of inches where the plastic has come up just a bit on the edge.Its kind of like its starting to roll up.

 

What can I do about this before it gets worse? What is the best way to repair it?

 

Thanks, Cindy

if you have livestock and you have no place to put it then your stuck.

 

but if theres nothing in there than i would e-mail or call www.jbjlighting.com and see if they will give you a new one:)

I have corals, LR and 3 fish. I can always bring them back to the house to my 120 gl. Its not like I have water leaking all over the place or anything, however it may be happening in the future if its not repaired somehow. Would I use silicone? I guess the salt creep plugs it up pretty good.

 

Do you really think that they would give me a new one? I don't think my husband kept the receipt on it.

 

Thanks for the reply and the link.

I'll see if I can get a pic of it today. I need to do my weekly wc.

Hey Cindy,

 

I can't help you much with the repair, but if it comes down to it, Chris at nanocustoms.com can sell you just a replacement tank. Check it out, I don't think it's all that expensive.

Are you saying that it includes the tank/sump combo?
