With enough silicone, you can glue small rocks together.

Are you attaching the fiberglass to the tank? Or coating the fiberglass?

I was gonna do a plywood tank, and I have read that silicone won't bond to pond sealant, so I was wondering if I could lay fiberglass over the framework for the glass viewing windows and bond the silicone to seal them in to the fiberglass. then I figured I could pond seal the fiberglass overlap to seal the whole thing.

I was going to use glass, it's easier to get.
