i get GE silicon 1 at HD and have never had an issue just be sure it sets up for 24 hours befor going in the tank or before filling with water. i have read that silicon 2 is really bad so be sure its 1.... (i prefer clear myself but others have used the white with no ill effects)

Get GE silicon 1 at the hardware store works great but i would let it dry 48 hours min. to cure. i used this on a 76 gallon 2 weeks ago. no issues. must be 100% silicone.
