    Hi Guys,

    Quick question:

    I've bought some black silicone sealant ( Alcolin/Henkel brand) for use in my nano to seal up the water gates etc.

    Couldn't find any black marine sealant.The sealant is labeled black "car" silicone sealant . The label states that it doesn't contain any nasties such as fungicide etc.

    Is this OK to use, i.e. is it marine safe ? :unsure:

    Has anyone else used the bostik car black? The website says that there's fungicide in it. . . .

    I could consider it . .
