    If memory serves me correctly, GE Silicone I is ok to use on the aquarium, correct?

    As long as it doesn't have any that antimicrobial additive in the silicone it should be just fine.

    Obviously I have to read the back of the instructions but I seem to remember it take me 7 days to cure as well. Hopefully that's still not the case.

    That is correct. The material can cure faster, depending on where it is used and how much you apply. When in doubt wait longer.

    I wouldn’t risk it. Just order aquarium safe silicone.
