It looks good katrina! Just don't leave it in the sun or garage where heat fluctuates wildly. That kills silicone.

Further, a friend of mine had a beautiful 300g tank he picked up, but he has had a stroke so he can't move things on his own... Left it outside for a few days until friends could come help on the weekend. Next day they heard a loud crack, they thought it was actually gunshot... Nope. The black back glass of the tank shattered from heat. He had it covered and everything, didn't help.

It was a very expensive tank, I believe it was a reef savvy, or something along that level of expensive. He was quite bummed.

Nope. I sat it in the living room so my husband can enjoy it:)
