I just wanted to put my 2cents worth here guys. I have used GE Kitchen and Bath silicone from HD
to create rockwork and caves in my new 55G tank. After doing a lot of research and reading Material Data Sheets I found that that silicone contains some (do not know which) chemical that is a fungicide (algaecide). According to many sources it is toxic to fish. Everyone recommends using GE Window and Door rubber sealant silicone as safe for tanks. Now I have to take apart all the rockwork, clean it up and do it again. I just do not want to take any chances. I read some conflicting stories where fish was dying like there is no tomorrow and other stories where people use mildew-resistant silicones for years with no problems, so go figure.
