There are lots of silicones from Dow or GE that will do the trick. You 
just have to use one that doesn't have any anti-mildew additives (arsenic 
being common). If you are not sure, you can go to That Fish Place (888 
842-8738) www.thatpetplace.com and order a 10.3 oz (caulk gun size) 
Aquarium Sealant, their part # PF0213 - $6.49
