will any sealant do or can someone link me to the correct one

Silicone. I would use the general as I feel / told that sanitary silicone don't stick so good as standard. Clean surfaces first so it sticks well.

Depends on the gap to the wall if sealant is the best option. Mine is about an inch so i just wedged a block of wood behind it. You can't see it and toilet doesn't move at all.

It should be screwed/bolted to the wall.

new ones don't have holes they sit on back of toilet fixed down by two bolts

Mine are just balanced and siliconed to the wall. My sinks are balanced on the pedestal and glued to the wall. Cowboys don't do screws :)

I find that pretty disgusting. What if a kid bumps into it? That stuff is as sharp as glass when it broken & with the weight falling on to a kid it could easily end up in death.

Only way to remove it is with a hacksaw blade as it sticks solid. You would probably pull the tiles off if trying to pull the cystern off the wall after it has been sealed to it to be honest

they are also bolted with two bolts to the base of the toilet so wont fall
and as there are not bolt holes that must be considered adequate

cant fall off as its bolted to the toilet back base with two bolts as i said before but i only want to find the correct stuff to use to seal it again to the wetwall to save it moving at the top

The two who answered gave different answers but i know there will be a squad of plumbers out there just dying to answer :p

Use what you want. Just a straight silicone preferably and anti-mold/fungal one.
