Hundreds of choices, Permatex and 3M make some great thread sealing products used for hydraulic applications which will not leak and offer some thread locking ability. Then there are anerobic sealants that only cure once out of exposure to the air. Some people even use liquid pipe thread dope, others use non-hardening sealant.

The only thing I wouldn't use is silicone.
