Thank you. I actually picked it up from home depot. They sell it at the lfs but it's to expensive. Just make sure it is uncured slate or it will be toxic. Then let it soak for a few days.

"DAP 100% silicon aquarium safe" was the full name.

Oh, sorry! I read that part, but it didn't register that that was its name.

You can also use GE 100% silicone...just be sure to get the one for doors and windows...NOT the one for bathrooms (the kind with a mildewcide is bad). It is either called GE Type One or GE Type Two...and I can never remember which it is. Just look for GE Type (something) for doors and windows.
