I recently aquired a 55 gal
with stand for free since the back glass was broken and sitting in his garage for about 3 years.
My dilemma is that the glass place here in town only has 1/4" glass and tha tank has 5/16" and the only aquarium safe silicone that I found has the limitations stating that it is only good up to a 30 gal
tank and no deeper than 18".( my tank is 20" deep )
Am I setting myself up for a big mess on my floor or will this be ok?
I'm more concerned with the 1/4" glass not holding up cause I figure that the silicone just has general warning, or am I wrong?
I wanted to ask the pros on here before I started to put it back together.
The glass was only $22 but I dont know where else to find any 5/16" thick nearby.
Here is a pic of my free tank and stand.
