Re: silicone remover and Walstad's methods
Re: silicone remover
I used steel wool and a scouring powder to remove all traces of old
silicone from the glass. It worked well for me. The 55 gal leaker that I
bought and fixed back in 1974 is still holding up just fine.
Re: Walstad's methods
I have gone a lot longer than 6 months. I have some guppy tanks that I
have not changed any water for 2.5 years. I have replaced evaporation
losses with rain water. Fish and plants still doing fine. To these tanks
I have added micronutrients, chelated iron, potassium chloride, magnesium
sulfate, and some lime for calcium. I have pulled frequent crops of plants
from these tanks.

get some rain, tomorrow.
