FYI: The solvent for silicone is denatured alcohol. You can get it from any hardware store. I recommend you pick some up when you get your silicone so cleanup is easier. If your as messy as I am when resealing you will need it!

I was getting ready to re-seal my tank and was having a hard time finding the correct silicone. I have a DAP product now that is 100% silicone that is FDA approved witch I think will not harm fish. Although it says that it should not be used in a continuous underwater situations. What is you thoughts? Have anyone used any other silicone then the actual aquarium silicone.
