Aquarium sealant

I'm planning on gluing a piece of driftwood to the top of my PennPlax cave in order to make my tank decorations more multi-level. When I asked for some sealant to do this at Petco, I was given aquarium silicon (like what you would use to hold the glass together). I was wondering if this is what I should use? How much should I put on and how should I let it dry?
I'm still at work so I have to get off the computer now. I;m hoping to do this when I get home tonight. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks so much!

follow the advice on the tube as far as drying and such.


and I say use it, if its good enough to glue the walls of your tank together, its good enough for just about anything
