But you think the dry lock would help out with the curing? How long did you wait before you put your Fish back in the tank ? I have an established aquarium that I am wanting to build one of these for I rather not kill them or start over.
The drylock will help but you would still need to cure it. Your best bet would to just find something big enough to soak it in, do daily water changes in it because the chemicals will still leech out. Monitor your ph, alkalinity if you can until its stable. If you have an extra heater that you could throw in there and crank up it will speed up the process
Yeah I just used this kind. Most important part is make sure its a 100% silicone. Then I just siliconed it to the back and bottom. Just be aware that you can't just put the fish back in there, you have to let it cure in water.
