those micro bubbles are air bubbles they are caused by not using enough silicone or by moving the glass around after you glued two pieces of glass together, glass should be spaces to allow for movement (so the glass does not bind) the only glue stronger than silicone for glass is uv glue but that can not be used on fish tanks hope this helps

ok, well, the last few weeks have been hectic as all get out. The last baffle in the sump needed to be moved to accomodate the bigger return pump. A seperate stand was constructed for the sump. my existing 55 gallon tank and corresponding FW equipment was sold to a co-worker, and a new Reef Ready tank was ordered. Lots of last minute researching and the I ordered the lights and other equipment.

I picked up the Reef ready tank yesterday. Picked up all of the plumbing supplies as well. Most of the equipment arrived today. The lights are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I spent several hours last night, and this morning getting the stand finished and the plumbing complete. Iand here we have the current state of things.

Here is a view of the back side of the setup once the plumbing was completed

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
