Use an epoxy instead of silicone.

ive even toyed with just buying 75g frames from glass cages(i think they will actually ship those to my door.) and building my own with pre cut glass.

keep in mind this is a wrought iron stand that allows for over under stacking of tanks. the space is there. i want to utilize it if i can. PLUS it would be fun to say i custom built it... not saying building another 75g under it. just a 14" tall mini 75g.

i do stupid things sometimes just because the thought gets into my head. please see previously posted pics of my bike.

and that works? man i just got used to the idea of resealing tanks with silicone and now you want to throw another bonding method at me?

my brain is still mushy with trying to learn what i need to just to keep a fish alive.

Any epoxy should do. It seals like concrete, yes, it'll work. Once it's dry, it won't bleed. So it should have no fish issues. Rinse it out before you fill it. I'd get the strongest u could find. Lowes, home depot, ace all sell it.
