    thanks for the video joey, I recently used your how to build an acrylic aquarium and I had some of the weldon 4 get away from me and it dripped down the side, is this method good for removing the marks the weldon left in the acrylic?

    I have a metaframe 55g and a 20g these tansks are pretty BA! I have a metaframe 10g lid with no tank I would be willing to get rid of if you need to make it complete.

    Nice video joey and of course glass is always the PIA. But now when I see scratched acrylic tanks I can get them knowing there lack of knowledge or craftsmanship is my gain.

    Good job Joey! Now I have a question, I have a 120 gallon acrylic aquarium, the previous owner used silicone to help seal the leak on the seams, so all seams has silicone on it, what do you think will be the best way to get rid of the silicone on the acrylic? Would novus be okay if I use it inside the aquarium and just was it thoroughly? I would really appreciate your feedbacks.
