Silicone separation on ADA tank! HELP!!! *pics*

Hello everyone, I'm a bit worried as my ADA tank (75P, 42g) seems to be having a bit of silicone separation on the bottom seal, of the front panel. It's 8mm glass, so about a 9mm seal, and the separation is about 1mm and has not gotten any worse as far as I can tell, and I am not sure if it was there when I received the tank, which is also likely, which would make it nothing to worry about. I want to know if there's any issues with future leakage or breakage because of it, basically, is it serious or not? the pics are AWFUL as they are from my 2mp phone, but they show enough of it for you guys to tell me wether or not I should be worried.

Thanks!!







The point of separation is in the center of each photo if you're having trouble seeing it.

I cant see a thing with those pictures. If the tank has been up for a while and not moved, and you dont jam sharp objects into the seam, I wouldnt worry much about it (course that being said I cant even see the part in question). If it has just been set up or recently moved, keep an eye on it, til there are clearer pictures I cant be of much help. Silicone is pretty durable though.

+1 on the blurry. Use a tripod or put it on a chair or something and do a 3-second timer so that it's not blurry.

Yeah, knowing the location of the seperation in the picture doesn't do anyone any good if they can't see the details.

Best of luck, anyhow.

If you are worried about it contact Jeff @ ADG those tanks have a warranty on them. Did you buy it new?
