Is this still the one that is safe to use?  Looking to build my new sump (just putting in baffles)

Many people have used it successfully for resealing tanks. It bonds well to glass but not as well to plexiglass.  I believe it still says in the instructions - Not for aquarium use. I have used the GE Silicone 1 for small repairs only. I normally use the Loctite brand for aquariums for major underwater repairs.

i used it for my sump, no problems, does not seem to inhibit algae growth which was my concern due to 'mildew/mold resistance'
