Those sealants seem fine, though I can't personally give any specific advice on exact brands and such for sealants just that they should be free of additives and 100% silicon.

Yes, you really do need to do the sealing outside - it isn't exactly something you can avoid at all. Silicon as I mentioned is fume producing while curing which takes 2-3 days minimum. You really don't want any pets or yourself breathing in the fumes as they are very harmful, but once it is fully cured you can have help bringing it back inside and it will not have fumes once the silicon is fully cured!

The first one you linked was one I had bookmarked when I was thinking of using sealant but I was put off by the strong fumes mentioned in the reviews. Even though it says it's safe for fish, as Amity says, until it's fully cured it will give off strong fumes.

I know you're worried about it leaking but personally I wouldn't seal it. An empty tank with liquid in is bound to have some seeping underneath that gap but a tank full of substrate won't I am sure. Hamsters really don't pee that much! The bottom of my cage is always bone dry!

I would just see how you go without sealing it and try not to worry x
