If you apply a couple of coats of pond armor and then go over it with silicone it can seal the vivarium up but this is considered the slap dash method. The gold standard is using fiberglass weave in the corners. Apply a coat of pond armor, then put down the fiber weave with more pond armor on top. Followed by a third and final coat of pond armor. This is what plywood aquariums use and they need to withstand a lot more pressure then a vivarium.
