So, here I spent a good chunk of yesterday and then all of this morning and a bit of this afternoon carefully planning out and setting up a nice little 2.5g planted nano.
It looked GREAT. I was doing a little photo journal and everything.
So, I get to the final step and fill the thing up, after painstakingly planting everything.
I DID test it for leaks, both before and after removing the black trim from the top. I left the bottom trim in place, to give it plenty of support. I haven't dropped anything, there's no visible crack or anything. But the bottom right corner leaks.
So, I've had to pull everything out, including the layered substrate (peat, mulm, flourite, sand). The substrate can't just get tossed back in, as I wanted white sand, and the only fluorite sand I have at the moment is black.
I know I can reseal the tank, but I'll have to pick up some aquarium silicone.
I'm just sooooo frustrated. Especially since I paid way too much for the tank - it was $20!!! I paid less than that for my 10g, but I coughed up the bucks, because it was the only place in my city to get a small glass tank, and I didn't want to drive half an hour to the next town over.
Anyway, there's no purpose to this post, I'm just ranting
