So this is for glass on glass in glass baffles. Anybody wish they used a different product. Just a 29gl sump/fuge. HD/Lowes have DAP and Loctite aquarium safe silicone. Not interested in GE 1 or 2. Just looking for something to stick and not become discolored.

If you don't wish to order then I personally would prefer going to petco and getting aqueon, it bonds better and stays clear.

As long as its 100% silicone and you let it fully cure.. You are good to go..
Can't guarantee it won't turn colors if you stay clear

If you dont want discolored then get black. But as above aqueon works very well.

Yeah but it works well, and stays clear, and a good option if you are in too much of a hurry to order online, otherwise I would use RTV
Seems like there's a petco near every home depot around here, so it's an easy to find option
