Its a cluster of micro-bubbles in the silicone joint where the glass panes are mated. Its on both top corners where the front pane meets the side panes, spanning down from the top lip about 1-1/2" in length and in some places almost as thick as the 3/8" pane itself.

I came across this thread because I am obviously concerned; ESPECIALLY given the tank is rim-less/frame-less. (My first) Anything to be worried about?.. The "wet" inside seam looks alright and nothing is leaking as of today. lol! Its pretty unsightly when the LED's are ramped up and now I know its there I cant stop noticing it.

It is set level on there Ventura stand and I agree it could be a tad taller.

Email was sent to MarineLand as well. If I do not hear back from them by Tuesday I will give them a call and inquire about both the 60 and 93.

I've had my 93 Cube since February. I just noticed in the last few weeks that I have micro bubbles that look almost exactly the same as yours. It just started, so I'm a little worried.

I have the glass canopy for this tank (I'm using it for freshwater fish and not a reef) and the clips that support the canopy are aweful. It comes with 6 clips to hold the weight of the large glass canopy and they just can't take the weight of it. They bend and eventually break from it. I've called Marineland twice and received extra clips, but even with 12 on each side, some end up bending.

So with these being rimless, are they doomed to fail eventually? I really don't want to have to deal with taking this tank down and setting up a new one if I call Marineland.
