Aquarium Silicone

  1. Janmitch22 Member Member

    I'm going to try to make some naturalistic caves using silicone, PVC pipe, and gravel. Now, I've been seeing tubes of silicone sealant around...is that the silicone I would use for sticking the gravel to the pipe? Because those are pretty small tubes...anyone tried making caves?

    Make sure the silicone says aquarium safe or something like safe near food. I always buy the silicone from a pet store. You can buy the big tubes you put in one of those grease guns if you need a lot. I think I 'paid $8.00 for a large tube, but then I didn't have to worry about using the wrong kind.

    Can also get it at some place like lowes, just make sure it says food safe then it's safe for your fishes. :D

    Sweet...I saw some at Petco, but they had teeny tubes. I'll try Lowe's.

    I just paid $3.59 for an ounce at petsmart. The ounce went alot further than I thought it would.

    I was in Petco AND Home Depot today...Home Depot twice because I forgot something. It didn't even cross my mind to get that silicone. Gah! This old memory of mine....

    Neat site Gammerus. I read on there something about using duct tape to make things. A friend of mine bought me a "duct tape" wallet for my birthday. It was real ductape. We watch the RED/Green show and they joke about that a lot. 8)

    Jon you are 14 and it is probably before your time (no offense) but it is a comedy on t.v. that uses satire ect to poke fun of things ect. It's a pretty good show considering what's on t.v. nowadays.
