Default Fish tank

I just scored a great deal but had to promise not to set it up until we get into our own house

Your asking what did he score ???? It was a 150 gallon tank with stand,heater,canister filter and a few other things
I traded my 55 gallon tank and stand with the heater an hob filter some plants and several of the 3 types of snails ( mystery snails , rams horn snails and trumpet snails seeing as we have plenty to share)

So now my concern is will the caulking dry out if Iím not able to set up this tank for a couple years ?

During this time I will be able to get my DIY projects done for this tank I almost want to put water in it out in the garage and load it up with a couple heaters plants and fish lol

Unless that tank is very old, the caulking is all silicone, so it won't "dry out". You can tell, by looking through the glass at the joints, whether the joints all have good adhesion with the silicone. The biggest problem with storing it for a couple of years is to keep anything from hitting the glass and damaging it that way. (Just my opinion. When I store stuff in my garage it is always at risk of being damaged.)

Wrap the tank up in cardboard or foam if you don't want accidental chips.
