Can I use this caulk?

Hi I wanted to to make a hide out for my fish with stuff I have on hand and I was wondering if this brown caulk would work. The brand is DAP.

Just to be safe, check out aquarium silicone at your LFS. It's not too expensive.

That's not very specific? Dap has a lot of products. If you're refering to the dyna-flex line than no. You can use GE silicone 1. Or aquarium silicone as mentioned

I wouldn't use it it more then likely has additives in it that would harm the fish. Use the ge 1 as suggested

If you don't like the translucent look of clear silicone, you can sprinkle sand on it before it dries.

Thank you all for the answers I will have to pick up some aquarium sealant the next time I'm at the fish store.
