    Newly built tank, silicone concern?

    If my tank was newly built, like within the last 2 weeks, should I wait a while to fill the tank with water? Somebody at my LFS said he would wait another week or two. He said even though they say the silicone takes 2-3 days to set, he's seen new silicone split when a tank is filled if it...

    Opinions/suggestions on water please

    I am in the process of cycling a new 125 gal tank and I'm still getting a slightly greyish/whitish hue or haze when viewing the tank from the end. It looks pretty clear from the front. It sort of looks like a bacterial bloom which did in fact happen a day or two after setting the tank up, but...

    Tank choices.

    I'm looking into getting a new tank. I'm looking at a 100g,120g, or a 125g. My main question is, is acrylic worth the money? I can get a tank and stand for around 600 new in glass. Or I can spend about 850-900 to get just the tank in acrylic. A "clear for life" tank. But then I'd have to make...
