Hey thanks Lemur! I didn't think you could get it at a hardware store--I've read that it's hard to find.

Do you have any silicone application tips for a silicone newbasaur?

Heheh, no problem. How to Reseal an Aquarium has some great tips, with images. For your purposes, the main thing to grab from there would be to apply a quarter inch bead of silicone to the joints that you're sealing. Then you just run your finger along it to press it in and smooth it.
