Silicone question

Has anyone used this to reseal a tank ?

http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-Silico...0058/206692092

My HD has the GE #1 too , but this popped up in a search . Cost a little more than the #1 , but that is not an issue . Says it is 100% silicone , but would like to know if anyone has experience with it as far as strength goes . Thanks in advance .

It is adhesive not sealant...
Has stuff in it not aquarium friendly I would guess by the LOW VOC lable[which is a crock!].
You want GE #1 without mold inhibitors....

another GE option used by many.

Mind you ge removed their aquarium safe stamp from their entire silicone line and if you ask them through support tells you not to use any of their product for this purpose.
