Hi guys,
Can anyone recommend me a BRAND of silicone that is great for aquariums.
I know GE Silicone 1 is the one used but I've heard mixed reviews about it being strong enough for tanks.
I know aqueon makes silicone, but is it really good?

GE silicone 1 is what I use. From 10 gallon up to 550 gallon . Works like a champ.

I would guess that the Aqueon silicone is the same stuff they use on the tanks they build.

Yes ma'am not a problem at all. If you are resealing make sure you clean all the old silicone gunk off and have a pristine clean surface. I usually use some 80/20 isopropyl alcohol to clean the glass.
