And that is the best advice. I use DC 795 (black) It is what Disney uses to build their (large) tanks.

Personally I wouldn't mess with the structural silicone of the 180. Just clean, reseal and...

Everything is of course relative. I am not afraid of a 1% chance or less of failure. If I were that afraid of the odds I wouldn't ever leave my house. I've got a 1 in 4472 chance of getting killed...

On mine I use all threaded connections for the bulkheads. I also use Sch 80 in most cases and while I can get a leakproof seal without tef tape I do tend to err on the side of caution and use it...

It might not be the GFCI's fault. They do produce a nuisance trip with some motors. Especially cap start motors.

My guppy breeding took at least 12 ten gallon tanks if you want to keep the best to sell. And my efforts were only for my own enjoyment. If you allow harem breeding then you wind up with inferior...

Negative on the pipe dope. On anything fish related.

You'd be surprised at how little support a tank truly needs. The farm I got my 22 gallon breeders from had them on 2 galvanized pipes running the length of his aisles. And he had hundreds of tanks...

I'm looking at how you measured it appears that you aren't right on the inside of that hole. Looks more like you've got a 1.5" diameter there.

Probably because I don't really want any more tanks at this time. If I wanted them,...
