Hi guys

I had a bit of an accident last night and I need to replace a glass panel in my aquarium. I'm trying to get silicone in the Kerry area, what I've found is

1. Bostik - Evo-Stik super fix & bond
2. Bostik PU39

Both are solvent free and did not mention that they cannot be used in an aquarium.
I tried to send an e-mail to Bostik but it failed with a load of errors.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Pim

This has been moved from 'News' to 'Tank & Tank Construction - DIY' as 'News' wasn't really appropriate.

ps most fish shops sell Aquarium safe silicone, several of the Dublin shops are also prepared to post to you.

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

I ordered Bondit HA6 from ebay, but there is an experthardware near me so I will check them out. Silicone is one of the items that would be good to have for an emergency, but it doesn’t last forever so to have a local supply would be handy.
