    Hey guys I was just wondering what kind of epoxy I can use to fix a large crack in a canister filter that's aquarium safe? Or anything I can use to fix the crack.

    Go to home depot and buy some GE silicone black. or, find a bucket or something and just replace the whole canister portion.

    But will glue and silicone hold up over time? And I imagine there's some sort of pressure inside the canister?

    I put hot glue on mine. Let it set for like 24 hours before putting back in tank. It worked for mine but the crack wasn't too serious and my canister is small.
