Janelle Posted January 18, 2021 Share Posted January 18, 2021 Another question from the newbie... I purchased a 75 gal Aqueon tank from Petco as their $1 a gallon is sale is going on. I am not trying to get the cheapest or most expensive items to set up my tank but, after inspecting this tank further I am wondering if I should spend more than $100 on this size of tank. Here are a couple questions and concerns... Picture #1 - Why is this glop of silicone like this under each corner of the rim of the tank, and can I remove it? Not sure if its because this tank is mass produced or if provides a function. Picture #2 - The silicone is oozing out of where the glass meets on the outside edge of the tank. Can I razor blade the bead of silicone flush with the glass? Picture #3 - This wide silicone smear on the inside corner - is this going to look terrible when the tank is full of water or will it disappear? Picture #4 - A few silicone edges inside the tank were not feathered out. Will this thick edge be prone lifting or lead to a future leak? Can you razor blade that off to where the silicone was feathered out? Thank you again!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
