Everflex 200 contactors silicone

Info indicates it is antifuncal which has got me a bit worried- will it leach when dry?

Just to add it's just to hold rocks together not glass - I have already used it so if not I will probably have to ditch the lava rocks as the sealant has gone into the porous rock!

Stick with designated for Aquarium silicone,the range of silcones have different properties for different uses, better to get the right one

Thanks for the info - Came off dead easy, so was a terrible adhesive anyway!

I think I will use a glue gun as I think James Finlay used this in his aquascapes

Anti-fungal silicone will cause you serious problems. Absolutely do not use it for anything to do with aquaria!

Get HA6 or Aquamate silicone..... or alternatively use expanding foam if you're making a rock scape.
