some tanks do have issues with this.
my buddy's tank basically started falling aprt after about 3 weeks....oil everywhere, huge mess.
best to do some research on what kind of sealant is ok with mineral oil and then do a spec check on whatever tank you buy.
my same buddy is now back up and running without any problems...i culd ask him what kind of sealant he picked (i'm pretty sure standard silicone isn't a good idea)

Why you can't use basic silicone:
Quote:
1

Heat the surface of the silicone caulk with a hair dryer for two to three minutes.
2

Wet a washcloth with hot water and place it in the microwave for 30 seconds on high. Lay the hot cloth over the sealant. The warm and wet conditions work to soften the caulk. Leave the cloth on the glass for 10 minutes.
3

Remove the washcloth. Sprinkle 2 or 3 drops of mineral oil over the silicone. Place a razorblade at the edge of the caulk and work it slowly under the caulk without digging into the glass. Remove the silicon pieces as they dislodge from the glass. Use the razor to cut as much caulk from the glass as possible, until only fragments remain

It really depends on the Silicone Adhesive used or Non Silicone adhesive used rather. If the silicone is Hydrophobic the Mineral Oil will dissolve it. Mineral Oil and Silicone are both Hydrocarbons and 'Likes" dissolve "likes".
