Turtle Basking Ramp Help

Hi all!

I purchased a second hand tank about 5 years ago which was custom made for a turtle. The built in glass basking ramp has small pebels on top with silicone (I believe) and lately more of these small rocks are falling off. I dont want to risk my turtle eating any. there is also a lot of algae on the ramp under the water and if i attempted to clean it I'm sure more rocks would fall off. I'm thinking of removing the silicone and pebels and replacing it with something else. Any ideas on how to remove the silicone safely would be great and I would love suggestions as to what to replace it with:) Thank you!

Thank you!
