GE Silicone SCS1200 for aquarium building

Recommended Posts

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!! 🙂

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
