After numerous unavoidable holdups, I have finally finished painting the tank stand - only one more coat on the hood and it's done.
Here are pics of the tank which was custom made for me. The guy makes a lot of tanks but I don't personally know anyone that has bought a tank from him. It's 4x2x2.
A couple of questions:
1) The silicone bead is not pushed into the corners and edges. I notice this is the same on my 55 gal
octagonal and has not been an issue. Is this normal? There seems to be a good amount of silicone between the panes of glass.
2) There is a small chip in the top edge where the pieces meet. I don't think this will effect the tank but would like some input/assurance.
3) The best way to clean it? I'll need to use a razor blade to take off the extra silicone on the panes, but can I trim/shave the extra silicone off of the outside corners where it has oozed out between the panes or would this potentially compromise the seal?
Thanks in advance!
