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:
