Do not use that product it contains mold and mildew resistant chemicals in it which is harmful to the tank. DAP makes a 100% silicone that is aquarium safe.

GE silicone 1 does not have mold and mildew inhibitors. Its 100% pure silicone. I used it on several aquarium projects and its always been fine. (its also covered in algae too lol) just be careful and make sure you read the labels very thoroughly
