The only one I've ever used is made by DAP. I got it at Home Depot and this is what the package looked like last time it got it. Click image for larger version

It's much cheaper than what any aquatic store sells. The only thing that is the biggest importance is it MUST say AQUARIUM SAFE !!!! Here's the actual Home Depot product link. http://m.homedepot.com/p/DAP-2-8-oz-...0688/100128841

Perfect I'll pick that up monday!

And yes that's it! It's either that or Jameson or merlot ☺️

Now what filter do I order? I'm thinking a sunsun for the price?

Oh, Jameson ???? Nice !!!! My kinda people lol. I'm not familiar with Sunsun products. I run all Fluval canisters on my tanks but it's just a preference thing.

I'd definitely get at least two, maybe three (I'll double check what others say) just to be safe as thats a good size tank. You don't want to run out in the middle of this project. You may also want to pick up one of these http://m.homedepot.com/p/DAP-PRO-Cau...125/100666143/ to help spread the sealant. I used it a couple times but eventually wound up using a finger in the last one.

Hopefully the fiancé doesn't kill you. You've got a bit of work ahead of you and I want to see results, lol.

I have to find a stand or I gotta build that too lol. I wish I could just plop it on my dresser... He is certainly gonna have choice words over this and is probably gonna make a wisecrack about taking back the ring lol.

The sun sun is rated at 525gph so that should be fine right? I run them with matrix and purigen

Don't buy silicone in a squeeze tube. Get one for a caulking gun. Price is about the same but you get a lot more and it is much easier to apply. Also I would recommend you get a pair or two of nitrile gloves (really thin stretchy blue ones). This will keep your fingers clean and avoid tainting the silicone with skin oils.

I have nitrile gloves and I do have a caulking gun. A gun is better than the squeeze tube?
