I bought a 200 gallon aquarium and it leaks. so i cut out all the old silicone. used GE silicone I to reseal it. let it cure for 24 hrs and filled my tank. The front bottom seal cracked out along the whole length of the glass. My question is does the actual aquarium silicone have a higher tensile strength than the GE stuff? I read online that lots of people use the GE stuff to seal their tanks but mostly less than 100 gallons. when the seal busted it broke the wooden support loose from the bottom should i add more braces or is the silicone alone supposed to hold the tank together?
