Hey guys, so I broke the tank down completely, washed and cleaned everything super well. I went to put it back together, and it was no good. The side panels where it meets the bottom glass dindt stick properly, you coudl see tons of air inclusion there. Front and back were ok as they are heavy and you can easily press down on them to get the air out and and a nice thin joint. So i broke it down again, and am educating myself more before attempting the new rebuild
If i put it back together all the panes at once, you can make sure all corners are right angle and everyhtign is placed well. Probelm, all the panes move around a bit as you try to position the other one. Then, you cand get the side panels to stick ncie to the bottom pane.
If I do one pane at a time, I can make sure the seams are very nice and tight, bti then you risk having it out of square. And hav eto cap the silicone everytime which doesnt work some of the time and I would end up wasting a bunch..
Any pointers on this one?
My tank is built such that all 4 sides butt up along side the bottom pane. They don;t sit on top of it. So i tipped the tank on its back side so i would have a flat plane to stick the side and bottom piece onto.
