Re: [APD] Algae and Aquarium Sealant

Thanks to both of you for the info...I also followed up with a call to All-Glass as I have never had this happen on a tank before.  The rep told me that the seal is between the two pieces of glass.  She said she had never heard of holes coming in the part that's in the tank, but that it wouldn't affect the integrity of the tank.  She said that the worst that would happen if the seal between the glass deteriorated would be a slow beading of water, at which point repair would be needed.  So, I'll just keep an eye on it and relax.  Thanks again!

No issues near as I can tell.

Isn't it just the sealant that is between the two pieces of glass that 
does the job of holding them together and sealing?  I think the squeeze 
out of silicone is superfluous.  Unless they did a really bad job of 
cleaning the glass before assembling the tank the worst that might 
happen is a seeping leak.  But, I could be wrong.
