Hi guys. My name is Mike and I am kind of new to the hobby. I just replaced my 92 corner tank for this reefer 350. I thought I got a good deal for $350. But when I moved everything to a new tank I noticed this silicone in terrible shape. Can you guys tell me if there is anyway to fix it other then taking whole glass out ? It looks like air got there from the outside. I was thinking to get some kind of glue in syringe with needle and just push it there but I’m not sure if it’s even possible

The second picture looks like the seam has come apart . Its hard for me to tell with all the blue light. A close up under white light would be good

You can just inject new silicone in as new silicone will not adhere to old silicone. Unfortunately it's either redo it all or nothing

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
