Biocube 32 Splash Guard Repair Kit.
Steve's LEDs Turbo LED upgrade is a very powerful LED system! Under rare circumstances, if the splash guard becomes dirty, perhaps waterspots, a bit of algae, or debris can reflect light back through the splash guard causing it to heat up. The more it heats up, it begins to bake and turn yellow. Eventually this gets very dark colored and creates a snowball effect where it gets worse and worse and eventually can erode a hole in the splash guard.
You could replace the factory splash guard, however that is very expensive and there is a risk of this happening again. This is a permanent solution that will last the life of the aquarium. It includes all the components necessary to modify the splash guard using thick tempered glass (not plastic) and is easy to install. We even include the tools you need!
This is heavy 3/16" thick glass, for durability and ease of handling and must be installed on the outside of the splashguard. If you install it inside the splash guard, you will not have the clearance for your LEDs and this will cause permanent damage to the LED system. Plus, installing this glass on the outside is much easier!
1) Cut out a rectangle using the included rotary tool and the cutting wheel accessory.
2) Clean the cut from flashing and dust.
3) Put sealant around the perimeter of the cutout.
4) Press on the glass firmly to form a permanent seal and let it dry overnight.
5) Reinstall and get back to enjoying your aquarium and never worry about this happening ever again!
