They will all say that... From what i have learned the same more expensive stuff you can buy FROM a fish store is the same stuff as GE Silicone 1, 100% So even thought it says not for AQ(even the safe stuff without the mildew ect) tech it's fine can ask anay member here who has used it :) Why they say that? :shrug: could be to divert sales to the "AQ" product for more sales?

they do not want to be liable for anyone choosing the wrong one and destroying a fish tank. im sure they've already had law suits esp. in todays day and world where you get sued when someone trips over their own shoe laces on your sidewalk.

and it potentially is to steer people towards the aquarium safe silicon ( which is just 100% silicon anyways ) at a much higher marked up price because it has the word "aquarium" on it.

as long as its 100% silicon and you allow it plenty of cure time before putting it in your tank you wont have any problems.

Oh!!! Thanks guys for the tips! (I haven't figured out how to link my threads to my CP so I keep forgetting where I post)
I was in WM the day I bought a new tank and was looking at the silicone. They all said not for use in aq and I didn't pick any up. I obviously did not see this thread. They did not have ge silicone 1 in the blue bottle (for windows) but they had another one opposite the red bottle.. I think I can get that one, it doesn't contain a mildew resistant.
I bought and divided a 5g and plopped in some real plants but my hornwort is dying :( No luck I suppose. Stick to the fake hornwort.
