Aquarium silicone


I want to make a tank with the same quality like ADA tanks, in regards to the seams (or lack of).

Generally the tanks you can get in Denmark is in a quality that sucks:



Big fat black silicone rubber seams - and the price is totally off what you get.

No tankmaker in Denmark have even thougt of making a rimless tank, due to tha fact that most tank usually have aluminium edges:



Nice Hah???

I have made some smaller tanks - with good succes, but using regular clear aquarium silicone, that after some time gets white:



So - question is: What is the type/kind of silicone that I should use to make thouse great seams:



A link to a shop in the UK og europe would be great - or a link to a shop that sells quality tanks in ADA quality (with prices less than 150 for 60x30x36, and delivers to Denmark)
