We have a 36 gallon bow front tank we had got 3 years ago and had set up for a year and a half, then we had to take if down to move into a rental house until our new house was being done built. So the tank has sat empty for about a year and a half. I really want so set it back up now that were moved in but I am worried about it leaking, we had another of the same tank about 5 years ago and it leaked after a year and they gave us a new one (which is the one we have now) I was wondering if you can just add some new silicone over the old silicone. It does not appear to be dry rotten or anything but I just want to be sure since its going upstairs in our new house.
Our aquarium was a real wood stand but the trim on the actual aquarium is fake plastic looking wood and the hood/light is brown plastic. What can I paint this with so Its safe for the fish and will not peel off? I was guess 100% latex and non-toxic spray paint? We already painted the stand white, we want it all to match. Thanks!
