  1. Does anyone have experience using a galvanized container for a pond without a liner or would I need to epoxy coat it? If epoxy is necessary, is there a link to the product and a tutorial on application? I would use soap and water to wash it out initially to make sure I removed any oils whether or not I put an epoxy layer over it.
  2. Maybe a dumb question but, why do we use silicone for binding glass tanks instead of epoxies? I frequently use epoxy for work and it forms a pretty strong clear bond. It is also hard so you could easily scrape and brush algae off without damaging it, it wont peel, and can flow into tight joints creating a water tight seal. I understand that some epoxies are not very dimensionally stable but the stuff we use as work is very dimensionally stable and that's one of it's selling points. Not really planning anything with this info, just curious.
  3. Hi folks. I recently purchased a second-hand 55 gallon Oceanic tank. It appears to be in really good shape, with excellent-looking/feeling silicone. The one concern however is a small chip in the glass right on one of the corner edges, about 1/3 down from the top of the tank. I have watched a view videos about chip/crack repair on aquariums, and most use an epoxy or windshield repair kit. However, all of those were not on the corner of a tank, they were on a flat area. There were a couple videos of edge repair. One of them used a concoction of thin super glue and baking soda to create a ‘cement’ that was super hard and strong. The other used two new strips of glass, about 4 inches wide, and siliconed them to the aquarium glass. One of the two pieces overlapped the edge of the tank, and the other butted up to it, just like a tank. All the edges were then siliconed to create a seal. So, do any of the members here have experience with repairing, or attempting to repair a chip on the edge of an aquarium? Was it successful? What works? What does not work?
