Whoops forgot to ask if it was acrylic or glass. Acrylic scratches very easily and I've never messed with them, so I don't really know the best way to remove the old silicone on that. With glass you can use a small straight blade, just be careful limit the area that you use it on. As in only the silicone area and nowhere else. This will limit any scratching. Scratching could be dangerous because bad bacteria could grow in there, but as long as you keep your water good it should be fine. Also, I'm assuming you know not to use any chemicals on the glass unless it says its safe for aquarium use. You'll want to wipe down and dry the area before applying new silicone.

Hopefully I can find some aquarium safe silicone at petsmart and maybe something to clean the hardwater stains
Also, I still have the clean the sand so that hasn't been in there yet...still a lot of work to do but I am worried about stressing them

I have converted a marine tank to a FW Tank and have the sump as a very large cannister filter. I have only had this running for a few weeks and still cycling but all is going well so far. I have also taken half the lights out to reduce the wattage/gallon to about 1 watt per gallon approx. Plant growth is excellent so far and I am doing a fish in cycling with 3 Guppies in the 110G tank.
