Acrylic Repair

Postby prairieview on Mon Jun 27, 2016 6:28 pm

I'm not sure if this is the right sub for this but does anyone have experience patching acrylic aquariums in the Madison area? I have a problem corner and have tried Weld On 16. Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks.

I've never repaired an aquarium, but weld-on 16 is likely too thick for fixing a crack or split seam. You likely want to use a thinner weld-on like #4 or #3 so that it goes into the crack more easily.

Just my thoughts - again, take it with a grain of salt.
