What is the best Silicone Sealant for Aquarium glass, ( Clear) and where is it readily available in the U.S. ? ( caulking tube size)

My glass center brace on my 200 gal tank got "tired" and fell into my tank along with my tops and lights. So i need to try and put in back in place. I had to empty the tank completely of course . :(

Just get 100% silicone from any hardware store. Make sure it's not silicone for kitchens and baths since they have a mildew killing additive in them. Just plain silicone works.

I use GE Silcone I, do not get the Silcone II. Also I like the Waterproof Window and door kind. This is what I have read is the most reccommended to use. You can get it at any Lowe's for around 5 bucks a tube I think your talking about.
