Use neither. Go get some aquarium silicon! You can use poxi under water yes for like in the pool or whatever but I'd not wanna have fish around if it starts giving off toxic stuff...rather safe then sorry if you're already going through the effort of building stuff and aquarium silicon is sold in any pet store and only few bucks.

i say use what works does silicone hold good? i need to build it out of the tank iam guessing? how long do i let it setup before adding the slate to the tank with water? slate is kinda heavy so might be hard to pick up and it stay together.
