I know that silicone doesn't adhere well to acrylic, but I have no idea about the stock tank. Do you think there is some kind of epoxy that you would need to use?
I also need to mention the stuff the sealant would be going on is solid plastic not fiber glass like the rest
Well the Epoxy that comes in like a syringe that is a 2 part kind will stick to plastic. Check the different kinds because there are like 3 kinds.
Photos I was kinda sloppy but I can trim it up later, if it leaks again well I don't know what to do then, but so far the Sealant is sticking very well
any way to speed up the drying process
nope it takes around 48 hrs to cure with most silicones. That's why I mentioned epoxy. Less curing time.
Wouldn't that be toxic to fish?
You mean the epoxy? or waiting only 48 hrs? If you mean epoxy once is fully cured nope. Silicone in the other hand has to be 72 hrs to be safe for fish.
the epoxy, and I wouldn't have fish in it for over 80-hours but I will have water in it in 48-hours the directions say its safe for water in 48-hours that is
There is epoxy safe for fish. There is actually a kind to use underwater to attach coral frags.
seal is working gonna move it to it's final resting place to be filled
