    I don't use any sealant that doesn't say aquarium safe.

    Better safe than sorry.

    I wouldn't chance it,most silicones say they are not aquarium safe even if they actually are, I know a lot of people use GE silicone 1 (window&doors)

    Depending on how much you need to use, I picked up a tube of loctite silicone that claims to be aquarium safe from Lowes for I think about 5 bucks. My plan didn't end up working out, the silicone worked well though.
