If all else fails I've had good luck pouring an inch deep layer of marine epoxy resin into the bottom of the tank. Make sure the tank is clean and dry and be sure to use marine epoxy.

Most leaks of this nature are caused because the installer tightens the screws from inside the the tank rather than tightening the nut from underneath and holding the screw head in place while firmly applying downward pressure (as one poster already suggested) on the tank. Turning the screw head from the inside totally distorts the rubber seals.
