silicon question

hi, i have seen many people recommend GE silicon 1 for making glass aquarium. but since i live in dubai i am unable to get GE silicon here. however at ace hardware here i can get "ace" brand silicon architectural grade. will this work for sticking the glass aquarium. the aquarium is 120cms*40cms*50cms. 240 liters.

The reason why people recommend the GE is because it's 100% silicone.
This doesn't mean that you have to get the exact brand in order for it to be safe, just find a product that is 100% silicone without any additives.
