yupp. if you can't see any leaks with it unplugged, plug it in. If you can't see any leaks with it plugged in, let it run for a few houres, over night if possible. If you still can't see any leaks, buy a lottery ticket.

yeah its glued up now and nope no leaks whatsoever. Guess I lucked out. Its running now, the only thing missing is the 4 locline segments that will screw in to the 4 Ts that run along the sides of my tank. Im getting ready to have family over today so I may not be able to get pics up until tomorrow but we'll see
