Thank you you can get from lfs。 those should be safe。
>Most tank silicon are safe for use, but you need to dry it out fully before water contact。 Best to leave it for 24 hours to dry fully。
>I use Dow corning。 Cos I was told tank makers use that。 Comes in clear, transparent, white, Grey and black。the gun is different。 Its tube like。 Not the conventional hollow type since its a ";sausage";。
>Any diference in black or white silicon or jus colour?
>Originally Posted by Terence_heng I use Dow corning。 Cos I was told tank makers use that。 Comes in clear, transparent, white, Grey and black。the gun is different。 Its tube like。 Not the conventional hollow type since its a ";sausage";。 Where you bought the Dow Corning silicone ?

For what reason Im not sure。
So its definitely safe to use for aquarium but make sure clean and dry both area that need to apply before applying
>Originally Posted by babyboy Any diference in black or white silicon or jus colour? Black is harder to dry。 Dow corning is kind of quick dry type but for water use, better to leave it 24hrs before adding water。
Outside cure might not be inside cure。
Black silicon is also use so that u wun be able to c the thickness of glass from front view。
Nicer in a way。
>I use selleys silicone, the one with the blue packing。。it states its aquarium save。 Home fix sells them。
>GE I windows and basements is safe as well。 Just make sure whatever you use is 100% silicone with no mold inhibitors or additives and you will be fine。
