i am building my own sump and i need to use silicon to keep the glass baffles in place. i read in other threads that GE silicone I is alrite to use but when i read the back of it it says not for use in aquariums. has anyone ever used this in a tank or know which kind i can use. preferably something from Home depot or lowes. thanx

I used kitchen and bathroom silicone from Home Depot when I made a pvc/gravel cave that is now in my aquarium. You need the tube of silicone plus a caulk gun, which cost me about $5 for both. I got the kitchen/bath because it can be used on pipes that hold water, plus it is non-toxic once it goes past the curing stage. I would just make sure to cure it a few days more than the tube says, just to be safe.
Fancying the fish world!
