I found a tube of 100%silicone, It however is apparently an off brand called red devil. Is this safe to use to build and seal some aquarium decor i am making. Thanks!

Whatever you use must have NO mold inhibitors in it


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

+1 on GE Silicone I. Make sure you get I and not II.

With all silicone, make sure you let it dry for at least 3-4 days. I waited a week before putting water in my tank after resealing a corner.

Ive used HA6 Marine silicone. Used on maritime boats and stuff. No presevatives or nothing. Good stuff. Quite cheap.

Just to clarify not all GE silicone is aquarium safe ONLY type 1, the other ones contain mold inhibitors that will kill the BB in your filter
