Critic please

I finished redoing the seal in the tank first time I did it!! I like the sides but the bottom could be better.

Looks good . Tips for the future....use blue masking tape to get crisp edges and use a spoon to spread the silicone .

My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .

did the tape but after I pulled it tried to smooth the bottom and made it ugly!!!! Spoon nice never would have thought of that.

There are some spots that I'm thinking are "thin" I used RTV108, am I ok with what I did

I think you did a great job. Just a tip for you and anyone else. Use tape, make sure the siliconed edge of the tape is wiped clean of any silicone. That way you dont have any silicone lift when removing the tape. Also a well prepped area before adding silicone is key. Bonding is just as or more important when doing this. Goodjob, cant wait to see what you do with this tank.

Just finished installing the cross brace. Cut a 4in wide sheet, I felt that would be good for a 30in long tank.
