Make sure it's fully cured, it leaches acetic acid during the curing process which could hurt the fish.


That's the stuff I use as well. The older bottles of the stuff actually said "aquarium safe" on them, while the newer tubes don't have this. I've had a friend that called GE and they said that the formula for this never changed, so I'd assume it's still aquarium (and fish) safe

Some do contain mold inhibiting additives, which are poison. I would get the all glass brand or something you know for sure is safe.
