I'd suggest #4 slowed down with some #5, using the above method. More room for error, and if you mess it up, you can tell.

Zephrant -- Any issues with using Weldon 4 without mixing it with #5 for a display tank? That's what I'm doing for my 72 x 48 x 24 tank (3/4 inch acrylic). I haven't had any issues with getting it lined up and seated (so far anyway).
