I would not use silicone for the bulkheads, I would use plumbers tape.
Nice stand. They did a great job!

Personally, I use silicone grease on the gasket that goes with the bulkhead. This will keep it from binding and twisting as you tighten the bulkhead.

What do you think?

Quick question about tank connectors. Does the rubber washer go on the inside of the tank or the outside of the tank?

If you ever need to adjust or do anything with it, good luck. All my tanks are drilled and everyone of them has plumbers tape. No problems ever and you will be thankful in the future. I replumbed and added a Durso to my 135, had to replace the bulkheads to shorter ones to make it fit.
