Had me more than a little confused when I was looking, because I first picked up one of the new versions, and it clearly indicated that it wasn't aquarium safe. Then I found an old one, that didn't mention aquariums at all. That's when I found the different revision numbers - they are in the very last block of text on the label, under the spanish instructions.
Ours comes in tubes and has no Spanish....:P

I go by what the GE silicones and sealants manual and site says.

Sorry, yes it was in a tube (caulking gun tube). You probably have 0101. I'm just saying be careful, since they have either changed the formula in 0305 (which could be a problem), or have just made a labeling change (which would be OK).
