I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

as you can see, you want to glue the pipes to the bulkheads because they are not the threaded type, but the slip type.

So no silicone and only glue the two? with pvc cement then?

Looking at the list of what came in the kit is there anything missing?

looks like they mean for you to cement the flex tube to the bulk head since its a slip fit.

my interpritaion is cement the drain pipe top to bottom and flex hoses. and only cement the return to the bulk head fitting. no need to do it to the elbow at the top. and lube or "wet" the bulk head seals for assembly.

i would definitely glue all of the return plumbing since it's under a little pressure. you won't want the 90 at the top coming loose and shooting water straight up in the air while you are out/sleeping. i believe locline are usually threaded, so that doesn't need to be glued.
