Can someone please tell me specifically what brand of silicone can be used
 in an aquarium? I have been using small, toothpaste size tubes of Duponts
 "Aquarium silicone", but I would like to find something larger. I see dozens
 of silicone or calking, but none with certainty that are pure silicone.

Use DAP 100% Silicone Sealant, Caulking gun size (10.1 oz cartridge) , A Dow 
Corning Brand available at most Hardware Stores and Building Supply houses.  
Price $4.60 or there about.  For some reason the label no longer mentions 
aquarium use only that it adheres to glass.  I am still using some home made 
tanks made with this sealant in the late sixties.
