The GE Number 1 (Important) silicone is exactly the same thing that other stores charge a fortune for "aquarium safe" silicone. Be sure not to use the number 2 variant though just number 1. The full size tubes that you use with a caulking gun are all you need and can be found regularly on sale for 2-3 dollars a tube.

I can attest that it's safe and has not had any issues in my 125

The GE 100 Silicone I should be available at any Lowe's or Home Depot, probably Ace Hardware...or whatever large home-improvement store is near you.

Here's a picture of the product:

I did find this on-line resource but it was more expensive than ACE Hardware.
