Have been having this problem for several months now. Thought sealing rubber on edges has gaps that caused water infiltrating inside bulb's compartment. Bought aquarium-safe silicone, closed gaps and still have same problem. Was thinking water comes through bulb's socket: I wanted to use white enamel paintspray on this rusty connector, but had to ask if doing so represents risk for the health of goldfish.
Initially i have found bulb's compartment is leaking and recently identified the problem. When cover is closed, there are gaps in the middle on both sides even with rubber sealant protruding more than it should be as can be observed in the pictures below: http://i.imgur.com/5kC2m.png http://i.imgur.com/7YCwG.png Maybe plastic simply deformed or was bent when i got aquarium? Maybe i can heat plastic and bend it while it obeys deformation? I was suggested to use fishtank sealant silicone, but i still will need access to bulb's compartment in case of changing bulb maybe. I need sealant that won't require me taking it off and applying new layer everytime i close plastic compartment. Is there another additional way for solving this problem?
