Actually is ok one, must cure the silicon first before u put the fishes as most got chemical inside. If u worry, go big lfs to buy the silicon, most are white colour.

Maybe u can try sim dr near lor 3 geylang or ubi industrial estates. There are many big hardware shops there.

ya the lfs i found selling aquarium silicone are only clear coloured ones and if i bought those kinda beats the purpose of me wanting to buy the silicone in the first place...
