55 gallon tanks are a dime a dozen. The money spent on a new one would be far less painful than the hassle of trying to reseal such a common and easily replaceable tank. Toss it or go buy a snake.

Snap a pic or two if you can to help visualize. That's estimated head height, and probably conservative. I built my stand tall so I could view the tank at eye level. I have to get on a ladder to...
