Eau or anyone, please help! I have a trickle of brownish water marks trailing down my wall from one corner of my tank! The other day it was dried, now it's damp and I can feel wet on the bit where I can squeeze my finger round the back of the tank. Could there be a leak?? What the hell do I do if its leaking? No visible cracks. I have dried the water bits with a cloth, so if it becomes wet again I will know there's a leak. I did a water change yesterday so am hoping it it cold have spilled.... But aware I'm clutching at straws :-(

Can you mark the water level with a bit of tape or something then you can assess if it's going down?

Well it does go down gradually as it's a tropical tank and it slowly evaporates. Oh bollocky bollocks!

Could be, or could it be condensation dripping down? Try taking the lid off (if it's safe to do so) and see if it stops dripping.
