i think im back to putting the skimmer back into the sump. i went to lowes recently and the thickest glass they have is 1/8" not strong enough is it? they said it was single strength for what ever that means.

im worried about flex in acrylic. i may beable to find some 3/8 scrap that we have at work, we get sheets and cut tractor doors out of them for the right of way cutters.

even still, ive read that there is no good way to bond it to glass and that acrylic will work itself loose over time.

Tight fit it and silicone. It'll work. Not like water is rushing through it. Over and under, through rocks, sand and pumped back up... Simple and uncomplicated...

I got a sandshifting starfish and he is still pretty much alive and kicking (or whatever they do LOL). Just keep a close eye on it
