I am certain that I have a tank to bowl leak only.

I am certain that the tank does not leak before I put it on the bowl.

After I put the tank on the toilet I get a slow leak that will drain the tank to half full if the shutoff valve is off, otherwise the level dips to 60% and refills every 10 minutes ad infinitum - if the shutoff is left alone.

I thought the seal of the tank was independent. What am I missing here?

If the leak is inside the toilet and not running on the floor then adjusting or replacing the flapper will stop the water leaking from the tank into the bowl, which causes the fill valve to come on.

If the leak is outside the toilet and runs on the floor then it is the tank to bowl connection. This is a hard connection to make. It needs to be tighter than most connections without breaking the china! I presume you used new bolt rubber washers and a tank to bowl gasket. The correct tank to bowl gasket makes a difference.

I solved it with a new fill valve.
