First it is white not clear. Second for an aquarium I would never use anything but aquarium safe silicone, without knowing for certain that it was safe

GE Silione I
GE Silicone II
If it has any mildew inhibitors in it, its not the correct type of silicone.

GE Silicone I is clear and safe to use although it may say not for aquarium use.
More of a disclaimer for the product or ..use at own risk.
Have used the GE silicone I to seal/repair tank's with no issues.
