The type we used (sorry cannot remember the name at the moment) actually stated "Aquarium Safe" on the tube. It also had different drying times for aquariums versus other uses.

NO!! DO NOT USE!

That type of silicone has a mildew preventer in it, which is very bad news for your fish! The other GE version, Type 2, does not have mildewcide in it. It is the one labeled for doors and windows. I have used that one personally, and never had a problem.
