I think I saw some "aquarium safe" silicone at Walmart.com. I'll have to see if I can find it again. I'll post the link on here if I do. I will probably do myself fine by paying afew extra bucks to get a good silicone worry-free.

(edit:...)

Here it is...Walmart.com: Silicone Aquarium Sealant (Clear), 3 oz: Fish

yea.. a couple of bucks, but not that the GE silicon 1 is cheaper for over twice the volume. If your jsut working on a small tank, i guess it doesnt matter, but on larger tanks, its more cost efficient to get the GE Silicon 1.

I'm leaving this thread in Freshwater Aquarium as I think the initial question fits. But if you want to start another thread on sealing a new tank in DIY, fine.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
