I did a super weird customized 72x22(??)x30, peninsula style. It looks fantastic as a room divider, and is set high up. But it was stupid of me to have it only 22 inches deep. I thought I wanted a slimmer profile, but an extra two inches would be nice.

You mean the silicone that looks like it is underneath the triangle from the top view actually is not?
Yessir- it’s just to fill in the upper-edge chamfer of the glass triangle: so it wouldn’t have a recessed area. They have to chamfer the entire panel of glass, you can’t just leave a small portion un-chamfered.

Without that silicon in the chamfer, would probably have salt creep in there and look weird.

Thank you
 

Have you ever had an algae outbreak so bad that you had to break the tank down and start over?
