If it were me I would run to Walmart and buy a Rubbermaid tote to store all your livestock in with a heater and power head till you can figure it all out

That is if you don't already have a tote big enough and the water isn't gushing out

Last night i moved all of my lived stocks back in. I lost some of my favorites corals, but happily the tank was able to fix :). Thanks everyone for your input.

What was the cause of the leak? What was the fix? I'd like to know what to watch out for in the future for my own tank :)

The silicon was pealed off for some reason (7 mos old tank). Luckily it was fixable. I emptied the whole tank, let it dried, sealed it and waited for 48 hrs to let the new silicon to be firmed. Then waiting 1 day for sand and water settled before transferred all the live stock back in. Due to my lack of experience , taking me a lot of work and damage. I lost few lps, and some of my zoa havent open til now :(
