But silicone is safe for aquarium use?

Eheim makes an aquarium maintenance spray that is safe, and from what I can tell is just pure silicone. I use it on all o-rings and gaskets and never had a problem.

I've tried Vaseline and only worked for a bit. One thing that will make it dead silent is when it's been running for a while, at least mine did until it won't turn on anymore. Cleaned it and started like new again, put Vaseline but not as silent as when it had some sludge in the impeller shaft. Vibration noise is just the HOB's nature.
