They make an aquarium silicone. Home depot sells it here in tubes to fit a caulk gun. You will have to drain the tank and scrap out all the old seals to do it right.

It would be much less hassle to buy a new tank.

James has a video/reef tank store (dont ask). He will hook you up with tanks at his cost.

James got involved with a partner, ended up selling the business to him. The new guy and his wife made it in to a full line pet store with poor saltwater selection.

Personally haven't been by there in years, not sure if it's still open. It was on Lemoyne right behind Port O Call.

Pass Rd Pets is about it locally. His saltwater/reef selection and quality has improved tremendously in the last year or so though.
