It's hard to see that black seam. Can you take a brighter picture? At any rate, it doesn't look like it's coming undone to me, but again, it's kinda hard to see.

Just looks chewed and chipped in those pics that shouldn't be an issue but maybe better pics to be sure.

Still looks like its okay, just the 2 panes of glass don't line up perfectly my last tank had that someone was lazy when they sealed it. I could be wrong. Is it pulling apart .

This one pic makes it look like it is misaligned.

I have no idea what the tolerance is though.

no its not really pulling apart, like there isnt a gap in it how the other member had in his post. there are a few air bubles though under the seal. the picture with the air bubbles is in the link

I agree, the ragged part is cometic mostly the main seal is between the 2 panes of glass and it appears to look good from what I see.
I would say your ok, my 90 G hagen is black silicone as well and has some ragged edges too, but the seal between the panes look totally black. :smile:
