    make sure its non toxic, I would just get tank sealant, that way you dont have to take a chance in it.

    You can use regular hardware store silicone if you want.... GE Type I or II is safe and works well (same thing as "Aquarium Sealant" minus the price tag), just be sure it is not labeled *mildew resistant* or *anti-mildewing* as they have some chemicals in it that you do not want in your tank.
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.
