Bend the spout

Sometimes it’s hard to reach every corner of the aquarium with the silicone. If you encounter difficulties, try the tips below.

Light a fire

It’s easier to glue and reach all of the corners if you use a curved spout. Start by heating the spout with a lighter or a candle.

Bend the spout

When the spout is warm enough, just before the plastic starts to melt, it’s soft enough to bend. Bend it and hold there for a while. An angle of almost 90 degrees is sufficient.
