So right now I'm looking for a 125i+ gallon :). Right now I've come down to some similar tanks. The main difference is their silicone (other than the 2 inch difference).

The 125 (72x18x22) I'm looking at has clear/bluish silicone.

On the other hand, the 135 (72x18x24) has black silicone.



So as the title of the thread goes, "Black or Clear Sillicone?"

I picked up a 20L a few weeks ago with the black and I like the look of it, makes it look more framed in. The clear since its not fully clear and not a rimless/edgeless tank, you can see it anyways.

well, since they both do the job equally well it just comes down to personal preference. I like the black silicon look but if it's applied too wide I'd trim it down but this usually isn't neccessary.

The clear silicon is usually put on more liberally.

But to keep in the spirit of the thread... I'd go with the black because I don't mind the black and it's a larger tank!! :)
