Is this safe?

    I want to glue some rocks together for my cichlid tank, so that they don't fall over. My dad is a cabinet maker and he says this silicone should be safe for fish tanks. Just wanted to double check.

    Also, on the back, it says it takes 7-14 days to dry, but my dad uses it all the time and says it only takes a day... is it dry once it turns clear? Thanks in advance!

    Because it has the MicroBan, I would say no. Otherwise, I don't know for sure.

    I would also say no to the microban.

    Ok, so what kind of silicone should I be looking for? What does everybody else use?

    Aquarium silicone. You can get it at most lfs. However, for rocks, you may find a aquarium epoxy more reliable.

    Hooray! I'm trying to work on it now, but fishlore is just so distracting!
