Or maybe you have Hulk hands. So the tank is leaking too? That sucks. Time for an upgrade.
Apparently it can happen with the thinner, small glass tank lids. Something to do with condensation water drying and heat or some such.
Just happy the disaster has been avoided. New tank lid acquired, leak fixed. I'm glad I work in a pet store some days lol. I'd love to upgrade but just don't have room right now.
Will post updated photos tomorrow most likely after a water change.
