GE Silicone SCS1200 for aquarium building

Recommended Posts

Aquapac

Hello my friends!

I am looking for a retailer selling the GE Silicone SCS1200.

Does anyone have any idea where this can be found or bought online in NSW or Australia in general?

Why ? Building your own tank/s?

GE SCS1200 is near impossible to buy retail in Aus.

You might get lucky at an LFS that build tanks. If they would even sell you their precise stash.

if you are building a small tank, the Selleys one that's is safe for aquariums is good enough.

But I assume you need the stronger stuff for a big tank if you were looking for the GE SCS1200. In that case, the Bostik Rhodorsil V2 is almost as good and can be found easily. Do some more research on the bostik yourself on where to buy, just google it.

 

hope that helps.

Hi Jay,

Thank you very much for your response. I want to make some custom made tanks to fill some weird spots in the rooms and some of the tanks will be approx 200-300 litres. I read in all forums that the GE SCS1200 silicon is by far the best in terms of specs.

However, I have heard about the Bostik Rhodorsil V2 (would greatly appreciate if you could pm me any shops in Sydney selling it) and also about the Dow Corning 999-A. Which one would you go for between the two?

Thanks in advance for your help 😉

More details please?

Got a link / price ?

Just in case there are people here who would want to know.

And for those that are thinking, what's the big deal with GE SCS 1200 silicon ... this is the bees knees, the Ferrari, the yummy in my honey (wait, what?!) ... of silicon to be used for building large tanks. Forget Selleys - dont even try building a large tank with Selleys.

I found the ad by typing in the search bar on gumtree: ge scs1200 aquarium silicone.

Friendly person, replies fast, I met with him in person for local pick up.

I will start the project tomorrow!! 🙂

      G'day Simon, Thank you for your reply. I cannot understand why if Java Moss is so quick and easy to grow.  It is expensive to buy. I already have Red Cherry & Blue Cherry Shrimps. I am soon going to get some Yellow ones.The Substrate I have is Black Sand and ADA Amazonia. I also placed small walnut size stones in one corner so that the shrimps can hide. Cheers Perry

      Hopefully you will get the new shrimps later this week, exciting stuff! They grow fairly quickly! The babies will feed off the sponge so it doesn't surprise me to hear they like it there. Pleased to hear it is going so well! Simon

      The babies are showing up more and more, they really  like to hang out on the tiny driftwood on the right side, under the sponge filter. I’ve been using your suggestion, and using my pipettes to blow some of the Baby Shrimp, Shrimp Fit into that area when dosing the Glasgarten mixture. The shrimp have not yet arrived, this place doesn’t ship overnight, and the were shipped yesterday. The galaxies my buddy ordered on this order were still in quarantine until yesterday, so it delayed shipping. However, I will give this fish supplier  credit, as I’ve never had a casualty from them from anything I’ve ordered, and they throw in plenty of spares( 2-3 on average). They also offer a DOA refund policy. I anticipate them being here Friday or Saturday.

      Have the new shrimps arrived yet? Hope you are still seeing plenty of  baby shrimps! Simon
