The new leak is coming from the bolts and....

...around where the "donut" seals between the tank and bowl. Sorry if I wasn't clear in the original message. The answers here are very good advice! However, the leak no longer drips inside the bowl.
For the new leak, I tried tightening the tank hold-down bolts a little at a time and it kept on leaking until the porcelin tank just cracked!
I went and got a new tank and replaced it and am fearful of cracking it again by over tightening the bolts. I just can't get it to not leak with just mild tightening of the bolts. What am I doing wrong!? Thanks in advance.
