I planned on watching it for a week but I was gonna let the silicone dry for a week and we see what happened to that idea. Lol. Plus I have to make room for it and get a couple more things like gravel, lights, and heater.

Water testing for 48 is more than enough...

Just be careful when you are moving the tank! :)

It really can take a week, Miss Nicki. Wet silicone is poisonous to fish.


I guess in extreme cold temps I could see it taking that long, but I have never waited more than 48hrs.

The tube usually says dry within 24, but I know the pressure in one of these tanks so I give it extra curing time...

What kind of silicone did you use that took a week???


Bostic brand marine silicone. Also says 24 hours on the tube, but I could still smell it four days in. Several tank building sites recommend waiting a whole week, so that's what I tend to do whenever I use silicone for anything.

Seriously holding thumbs for no leaks!
