 Hi  All,
 
 The  side  panel  on  my  4  feet  aquarium  broke  off  a  couple  of  weeks  back.  I  have  removed  the  panel  and  scrapped  off  the  excess  silicon  from  that  side.  Now,  Can  I  just  replace  the  side  panel  or  Should  I  be  resealing  the  entire  aquarium?  I  watched  a  few  videos  where  they  are  suggesting  to  take  off  all  the  panels  and  reseal  the  entire  aquarium..  
 
 Any  suggestions?  
 
 TIA

 Re  do  the  whole  thing,  especially  since  its  a  4  footer..  
 Dis  mantle  all  glass,  clean  up  the  silicon  and  re  assemble  the  tank..

 Agree.  You  can  also  rest  in  peace  that  things  will  be  fine  once  you  redo  the  silicone  work  completely.

 I  would  say  it  is  personal  choice.  I  have  successfully  replaced  single  panels  in  tanks  without  any  issues.
 If  you  have  the  time  and  resources,  go  ahead  and  strip  the  whole  tank.  Else  just  replacing  the  side  panes  should  work  if  done  precisely.
