    Hey Guys,

    I have a tank that I am looking to dis-assemble and remove the silcone, frame, etc. What is the easiest way of doing so? I only want 2 panes of the glass, so they need to be protected and not broken. Any tips?

    If you need glass I have some so you wouldn't have to take the tank apart.

    ive heard that piano wire is nice for cutting silicone seams but have never done it myself.

    I use a pvc cutter to cut the frame and a single edge razor held in a vice grips to cut the seals. I broke down Megans broken 125 in about a half an hour. Although I have to admit I did put a small nick in the edge of one of the four panes we were trying to salvage.
