Question about Fish
125 GALLON AND 55 GALLON SALTWATER AQUARIUMS WITH UNCONTROLLABLE SALT BUILD UP ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE TANKS.I NEED ANY RECOMMENDATIONS YOU CAN GIVE ME TO FILL IN THE LARGE AND SMALL GAPS.I KNOW THERE HAS TO BE A CERTAIN TYPE OF PLASTIC OR PLEXIGLASS THAT I COULD GET TO CUT AND FILL THE GAPS.THERE HAS TO BE A WAY TO MAKE A SOMEWHAT AIR TIGHT SEAL ON THE TOPS OF MY AQUARIUM. PLEASE ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE HELPFUL.I WOULD EVEN CLEAN AND DRY THE ENTIRE TOPS OF MY AQUARIUMS AND DRY MY GLASS AND EVEN USE SILICONE SEALANT ON THE TOP IF IT WOULD WORK. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY IDEAS YOU MAY HAVE.
I am no expert on saltwater tanks, but I am wondering what temperature you are keeping the tanks. The water evaporation rate of the tank depends on the temperature and humidity of the room the tank is in. Lowering the tank temperature to around 70-72 `F and increasing the ambient humidity to 60+% RH will reduce evaporation which will result in less salt encrustation.

No. Although many aquariums are made of glass, some are made from acrylic plastic. While glass aquariums are cheaper per gallon and harder to scratch, acrylic versions weigh less and are harder to break. You need to consider all of the advantages and disadvantages of each and then make your decision.

Absolutely not, if you put the wrong heater in your saltwater aquarium
it will get ruined in a matter of days. In addition it will not function
properly. You have to check if the heater is saltwater safe and you should ask
before you buy.
