When you build a background and you apply silicone, then apply coconut bark, how long do you allow the silicone to dry before you move to next step of the build.

I waited 2 days and called it good. Haven’t had any issues

Silicone needs water to cure. If you have high room humidity that will be enough. But you could assist curing - help it finish up - with a little spritz from a water bottle.

good luck!

If you're not in a rush (which is probably best), I'd wait more than the 24-48 hours recommended. There is still a pretty strong vinegar smell that it will emit for a few days, which isn't fun to work around. 4-5 days is probably best, but you can definitely start working in the tank after the initial 24-48 hour period.
