100% silicone from a hardware store is ok as well, no need to go to specialty stores to get silicone.

I did read about that. Would there be anything else I should look out for, that could be harmful?

Avoid any silicone marked as mildew resistant. That is toxic to fish/aquarium animals.

I got some aquarium sealant from one of my LFS for about £3 (the tube was about toothpaste tube sized).
I was thinking about some vampire crabs but don't know what tank I'd put them in yet (I got 4 tanks running atm,with two more in progress,I don't think the wife would like another one ).I was thinking of making a glass ramp leading to a shelf (all held up by sealant) along the back wall of the tank with plants hiding the ramp.

That sounds good. I've seen some people use soap dishes; attached to the glass with suction cups, these are then filled with moist sand or gravel. :)
