    Check that it is not a pipe or fitting leaking and the water running down the side or bottom to the final drip point.
    If you are 100% sure it is leaking from the bottom/side then you have to drain the tank and find out if it's a cracked base/side or a silicone joint problem and get it fixed.
    Get yourself plastic containers and store you corals in it with some lights, do it as quick as you can because it might be a small leak waiting to fail badly.
    If you cant get plastic containers try your LFS if they can help for a couple of days.
    Good luck.
