    Great write-up! I'll be resealing a 35 hex tank my sister is swapping for my leaking 27, so I'll need these directions in a day or two.

    LOVE the idea of the masking tape to keep the lines neat!

    I just came across this writeup, great job NG!! A plumber taught me a trick when smoothing any kind of caulk, ready?

    Wet your finger. Wetting your finger allows it to glide more evenly and smoothly over the caulk, and doesn't cause as much "waste" caulk to build up on your finger, as it doesn't stick. You get the smoothing effect without removing as much caulk. After each swipe, clean then re wet your finger. Same applies to beading tools

    If you look at the pics you will see I used my finger, but thanks.lol
    Its not recomended that you get silicone on your skin.Thats why I didn't mention it in the thread.
    I have always used my finger to smooth it out.You cannot feel the imperfections with a tool like you can with a finger.

    Nope.. GE 2 will end up killing your fish. Have a look at this thread to see what will happen if you use GE Silicone II instead of GE SIlicone I Phantom Killer

    Hate to say it but... you will need to strip all that you just put on your tank off.. clean it real good and start over using GE I 100% Silicone.

    AWESOME POST!! I would give you some more rep but it says I have to wait since I already gave you some recently...lol

    I'm always scared to do this cause I think I won't do it right and it will leak later on...lol After reading this I might try it next time I run across a good deal on a leaking tank
