Correct tube to valve doesn't need anything special.
People advise against loctite for those who don't know how to use it (glob it on and such).
If you use loctite apply it to the trailing threads ( the ones closest to the valve-bottle o-ring). This prevents the loctite from clogging any safety feature on the valve stem and will keep the valve in place. I'd recommend red loctite as green is a pain in the ass even when heat is applied.

For CO2 tanks, especially use loctite. I'd go with blue or red (red if you want more permanent). Also be sure to mark the side of the valve that has the siphon tube pointing up once you get it installed. You'll probably need a vice though to get it on/off, or a pipe wrench and a strap wrench.
