    Need a bit more info. What do you mean exactly when you say "you've unscrewed your tank" ? as... it does screw apart obviously. Where is it actually leaking from? E-liquid could have been introduced into the AFC section when refilling (if the coil came out with the chimney). There could be a broken or over tightened seal / insulator on your coil when screwed together once again letting e-liquid into the AFC section. Seal on your 510 positive pin may have the same issue. But need some more info to provide some more accurate help.

    The genuine nautilus tanks have a spring loaded pin. If you attach too tightly to your mod it will leak.

    Finger tight for connection only, and that goes for most Vape gear. If you over tighten you squish orings and they cannot swell with eliquid and create your seal. It is counter intuitive to loosen to stop leaking.

    Freaking out can be avoided if you start stocking up on backups. (Of everything) Backup your gear, then look for computers. You wont be able to build your computer if you dont have a vape!!!

    The air bubbles are normal, they'll be coming from the wick holes on the coil as the wick takes in more juice.

    Its a good sign your tank is wicking properly.
