The Titanic thought she was over engineered too. IMO there is no such thing. I like your stand better.

Well today I cleaned it up really good. Thank goodness for vinegar!

I noticed the two front seals were a bit worn, so I scraped them off... I will seal em back up tomorrow.

100% silicone right? Long as it don't have mold preventer or whatever right?

Yeah read the label VERY carefully. It might be worth just paying a little more to get officially "aquarium safe" silicone.

I just used the same thing on a slate decoration and it killed a bunch of my fish. In really fine print somewhere there was something about mold and mildew killer. The color on my tube was green though, it was silicone II clear.

This is silicone 1, says nothing about mildew resist

I think I looked at the 2 and it said mildew resistant...
