I'm picking up the glass baffles from the shop tomorrow. Just wanted to double check

GE All Purpose Silicone I 10.1-oz. Clear Window and Door Caulk is safe for aquariums.

Thank you Tom

I let the baffles cure for about 48 hours before adding water. Everything looks good. Im just missing some media and filter floss. Ordered a 12 foot roll coming in next week. I tossed in about 30 sponges they are working great The turtles were only kept in the tank about 2 weeks til the sump was finished. They were moved from my 55g Mbuna cichlid tank. The only filtration during that period was a sponge filter

Turtles are happy now

Planning to build a canopy with sliding glass panel when I have a month off from school during winter break.
