Just use silicone??

Its probably been said before, but, I'm adding an overflow to my 80g..was going to use 1/4" plexi in the back corner. Can I just silicone it in place or do I need to find a different sealant to go from the glass to the plexi. My thought was that there wouldn't be too much difference in water pressure on either side so I should be safe. Comments or concerns anyone??

-55g Plant & shrimp
(ottos temp home until 80g is up and running)
might keep them in there they are algea scrubbing gods...I've never had SAE's

-80g Show
(almost there)

If you use silicone, just make sure it is aquarium safe (you can get that at a pet store) or there is silicone at homedepot that is for doors and windows. That is the kind that you want because it doesnt kill bacteria. The kind for kitchen and bath does.

Thanx for your reply's....but I was going more for the how would silicone hold up on the plexi, not which type to use.

I think silicone should hold fine for an overflow. I don't really know what else you could use...
