Jawjagrrl Posted October 12, 2021 Share Posted October 12, 2021 As mentioned in the intro section, I was big into the hobby in the late 90s/early 00s, but 2 jobs, grad school, etc., happened and I put fish on pause. I got married, moved to a new state, etc. My two 55s are sitting in my mudroom, taunting me daily. They have been dry since 2009, but stored on a flat surface and without anything in them that would stress the seals. I plan to start testing them in the coming weeks - the room has a center drain if things don't go well. Feeling pretty good as they are sealed with good silicone and we moved them ourselves with care, so they haven't gotten mistreated. Are my odds good they will still be ok? Any considerations beyond testing in the basement for awhile to see if they are watertight? My ultimate nightmare is having them on display in our den, sitting on reclaimed heart pine floors, cycled, planted and full of fish... and they leak/break. My nanos are feeding my aquatic addiction for now so I can go slowly and get it all right! Any advice, past experiences good or bad are welcome.
