Did you use the silicone I kitchen & bath? There is different types of silicone 1.

What is the bar-code on that one you used?

I googled "silicon" and the UPC code and the search returned similar results:

Thank you your first link is exactly what I used. And the tube itself doesn't say mold and mildew resistant anywhere. Talk about learning the hard way. I'm draining the tank now I've got about 10 fish left out of 30. Hope they make it. Can't believe I have to reseal it again. Please take a lesson from what I've done.

Loctite sells a brand of silicone that states on it for aquarium use. I've picked it up from Lowes before.

Sorry for your losses.

I also did a search for safe silicon in the hardware store and the only one I returned with was Loctite Clear Silicon - Aquarium Safe. Sorry to hear about this...the GE descriptions on the labels were not always that clear. Good luck with the re-seal.

That is so horrible. So sorry for your losses! Just heart-breaking!! I just bought a used marine tank w/ stock that I'm mentally prepared to have to seal in an emergency situation if need be. I will definitely be extra sure it's the right silicone. I was just thinking about this tonight. I hope your remaining stock does well. Shame you have to reseal it but you're doing what's best, that's what a dedicated fish keeper would do. Good luck!!
