DIY Sump

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on making a sump out of a 20 high with some acrylic baffles. What silicone or other glue do you recommend?

I use the one with the little symbol of a fishy that says "Aquarium Safe"...believe it's one of the loctite brand, clear silicone.

GE silicone 1. DO NOT use silicone II, it has mold inhibitors.

When you use silicone it's not going ot adhere to the acrylic, you're just creating a wedge to hold it in place.
