This Silicone sealant safe to use (glass tank)

I just bought a tube of this from my local glass shop who made my custom baffles for my sump. The guy said he is more then positive that it would be safe to use.

What do you think?

Here's a link-

Looks to be 100% silicon. I say you will be fine. Just make sure it is completely cured.

I'm really happy with the way the stand/canopy turned out. Still going to add some decorative bar-pulls around it.
