Black silicone not matching

On my 125 gal Allglass tank theres large gaps on the rear glass where they siliconed the frame to the glass....i tried squirting black silicone between the outside frame and glass but it doesn't quite match and almost looks worse....i've thought about gluing a 1" strip of black plastic to the inside glass between the overflows....it's not visible if you're standing up but looks kinda tacky when you're seated looking straight at it.....anyone have any ideas on this project? TIA

i dont know the extent of the silicone on that tank, but you might be able to strip off the factory silicone and apply a new bead yourself.

if you chose this route, there are a few writeups that detail how to reseal a tank. the info and process would be similar.
