DAP makes this:
DAP Products - Silicone Sealants - DAP® All-Purpose 100% Silicone Adhesive Sealant

They specifically call out: "Long-lasting 100% silicone rubber sealant provides a strong waterproof seal that won't crack or shrink. Ideal for quick household repairs and projects, as well as building and repairing aquariums. Harmless to fresh and saltwater fish."

Yes it has to say that so they aren't responsible in case that does happen and or someone loses 10,000$ worth of fish

I have used that one. The smell for DAP is horrendous
