Any idea of a specific kind of silicone sold at Lowes or HD that is black and safe? I rather get a tube I can put in a caulk gun. It should be 100% silicone I know but some look like they say they have anti-mold and fungus things in them as well. Or say do not use below a water line.
After some research, it seems like this is stronger than GE 100% Silicone and is NSF approved safe for food. It is however more expensive, and not available locally. If im going to do this, im gonna spend a little extra and get black silicone that other users have had luck with.
im going to get some pics of the frame and start looking into lids and lights. Im not gonna spend anything on the tank untill I know how everything is gonna work out. Im in the middle of cleaning the stuck on "algae" now.
Thanks guys. Ill be doing some more research on the silicone before I order anything.
Since the diminseions are strange i dont think ill be able to find a hood. So im thinking this 48" light strip. Since I can pick up from that fish place locally if they can get this in stock, and during a local sale im sure I could get it for less than $99.
I am 98% cleaning the tank for the new silicone, just gotta make sure extra residue is all removed. I thought the silicone would be here tonight, but it wont be untill tomorrow. I do hope everything goes OK and i have a nice clean tank with no issues when im all done :)
