ge silicone 1
So after watching the DIY plants decorations video in another thread I began a quick search of aquarium safe sealants. Ge silicone 1 came up a lot - and I have that.. However, I have the kitchen and bath one which has a mildew resistant in it.. Is this safe to use? Thanks!
Also sounds like you have GE Silicone 2 and not one by the mold fighting stuff in it(have a tube in front of me) GE silicone II contains mold inhibitors and another additives that are LETHAL to aquatic life. In other words, DO NOT USE GE Silicone II or ANY silicone that contains inhibitors or additives. A good rule of thumb is look for the "100% Silicone" On it. Also most i see now on them say "Not for Aquariums" But dont worry most everyone on here that has worked with GE Silicone 1, 100% will tell you it works fine :)
Thanks guys! No it does say silicone 100% but it also says it contains a mildew resitant perservative.. Here's a pic. Sorry for the quality!!

Thanks guys!! I was just at walmart today T-T Oh well. I'll just have to put a hold on my DIY ;P
Thanks guys!! I can't wait to find it without the mildew stuff. I'm so glad I waited. I wanted to cut up my plants and make my own today so bad! lol
