    GE silicone II 100% silicone window and door don't get the kitchen and bath it has a anti mildow agent that will leach. The window and door is fine thow I have sealed tons of tanks with it and never sprung a leak in 10 years and it is only about $5 a tube at wal-mart.

    The ACE Hardware in Iowa City has aquarium caulk. I've used the GE 100% Silicone and the aquarium sealant both with good results.

    Someone can correct me if I'm wronge but 100% is 100% so in my mind they are the same thing just one says aquarium so they charge dubble.

    True - 100% is just that - 100% more profit for the "aquarium" variety [​IMG]

    I guss I should read more closely then cause I thought the GE II did not have the anti-mildew but I just went and looked at the tube and by kriky it sure dose. So sence it is currently running in my reef tank sump for 7 years,agressive tank sump for 1 year,seahorse tanks sumps just set up also countless cichlid tanks over the years it must me safe as well.
