I'm still fighting green hair algea.  Turned my pumps off, did some scrubbing, syphoned out the ditritus etc.  I notice the level of water left in my main display tank was lower than normal.

I look at my sump and it's over flowing.  I turn my pumps back on and everything goes back to normal (fortunately I lost only about a gallon of water before I noticed what was happening).
I have a glass tank and clearly my corner overflows have a leak in the seal along the edge. In one or the other sides. 
Do any of you know of a good way to reseal this without draining it?  I'm hoping for some epoxy type of tape that I can use and just apply as I cannot guarantee there won't be any power outages and I don't want to run into this.
I figure if I run into a power outage I can cap off my drain into the sump and that'll prevent a large disaster, but I'd have to be awake to notice the power going off and that's not a good situtation.
