I recently set up a cheap 10 gallon Petco tank. For the first week or week and a half it seemed fine but now has started leaking about 1/2 gallon per day.

I guess my first question would be whether it's worth trying to repair a $15 ($10 on sale) tank or if it would be more cost/time effective just to replace it.

If I do decide to repair it, any tips for finding the leak or would I just need to take it all apart and redo all the joints?

Any suggestions would help.

Thanks

Thanks for the suggestions.

If I can't return it (which may be hard since I scrubbed off the glued on labels and can't find the receipt) I'll probably get a new one and maybe try breaking down the current one, cutting the glass and rebuilding it as a nano cube just as a learning experience.
