Gluing glass panel to sump walls
I'm modifying my sump, and I'm looking to buy some glass panels to use as baffles.
I called a glass store, and when I told them what sizes i needed, they asked me if I wanted the edges to be "finished" (so smoothed out so they aren't sharp).
My question is if it's necessary to get the finishing? Or if I shouldn't get it?
Will it still silicone well to the aquarium walls if I don't smooth out the edges?
The only reason I can see as too why I should really get the finishing is so that I dont cut myself while having my hands/arms in the sump!
Thats always a bonus, not cutting yourself while working in a sump, but, that ones up to you. Doesn't matter which you get. Silicone will bond the glass.
Haha! Well I would get the top side finished for sure, not sure about the 3 other sides though. I'm going to see what the difference is, and if it isnt much less expensive I'll just go with the full finishing to be on the safe side :P
