Aquarium in trouble?

I recently have been setting up my new tank. 65" X 30" X 30" All was well until that is I noticed air bubbles in the silicon joints which were not there when I first set it up. I have been in touch with the LFS and I`m waiting a response.

Has anyone else had this problen and what was done about it?



Thanks in advance for your help.

The tank as it stands the joint at the front right hand side is the one in question.

Dosn't sound good... Looks like a nice living room, I'd get some buckets ready and contact the manufacture.

I would worry if there seems to be an increase in bubbles in that joint.

Ouch, sorry.

You are going to need a new tank. Since it's already new, the LFS is going to have to give you another.

That is going to fail, I wouldn't take no for an answer. TBH, I would take the water out and put it into buckets with all of the rock before it ends up ruining your living room.

Unhappy

Thanks guys for the replys.

I have spoke to the LFS and he is going to contact the manufactures asap. Although with the holiday period I probaly won`t get anything sorted for a few weeks.
