i agree with Big Ken.... silicon does not bind well with flexiglass....
however, you can make remedy for it by putting angle bar reinforcement
among all corners (top to bottom) to put bowing out under check... the
only set back is the reinforcement becomes very visible while viewing the
fish inside the tank (angle bar can be aluminum, plastic, or metal using silicon
as adhesive )

Here's an update on crab tank

like was stated silicone won't stick well to plexiglass, it did until I turned the heater on guess it grows faster than silicone when heated or cooled.

So we bought some glass panels and came up with this!


Waiting to complete the cycle and for stocking, this weekend.

BTW it has an internal filter, heater, and air stone that some one gave me, all plumbed in through a hole drilled in the back behind the rock.

Only thing I bought was the glass and the light total price was $19. :)
