One the does NOT have a fungus inhibitor like most bathroom silicone. That's toxic.
I'm assuming a glass sump. Otherwise if it's acrylic use acrylic glue instead.

They sell "aquarium" silicone on drs foster and smith, but the GE I think type 1 works for me (I tested it on a FW tank first)

There's a kind at lowes in a small tube that says on the package "aquarium safe" that I've used several times in building sumps and aquarium decor that's rather well priced. I can find an old package or tube if you'd like to know the brand. But it's in the Glues section of the store in a blue package

I know the tube you're talking about. I've used the same one from Lowes and never had a problem. They also carry a full sized canister that works with a caulking gun.
