    Someone suggested using a marine sealant on a AquaH20 cabinet. Is it necessary? What kind is recommended?

    To do what? to prevent water damage to the cabinet i assume, well yacht varnish or even a good gloss paint will do the same, just be careful to cover the tank and sump when you paint and ventilate the room for a day after.
