I've heard that silicone will not stick to plexiglass is this true? I'm building a section in my tank that will hold water and a pump tomorrow and just wondering. Thanks.

I've had some not stick as well, but my plexi was thin and not that sturdy so it moved and shifted a lot and eventually came apart at the seems.

I finished the water hole in my tank after using the silicone and after waiting 24 hours I poured the water and.....(drum roll).....the silicone worked!!!! It took 2 days. I put one layer on and saw what Cheryl was talking about, it would wiggle a little, so I let it sit over night. The next morning I put on a good thick layer and that strengthened and made a world of difference.

Now I have to glue some bark in the back and start adding stuff for the waterfall feature. Whew....this is almost like work, only this is enjoyable!!!
