100% Silicon will stay flexible. It shouldn't get hard. Once you can no longer smell the fumes you should be good to go.The expiration date is good but still a little rubbery. Seems to be getting harder. There is still a slight smell. Would the smell be indicative of vapor and is this vapor toxic to the frogs?
Why the rush to get the frogs in the tank? I usually wait and let the plants grow in some and let the tank reach it's equalibrium.How long does it take for silicon to get semi hard? And how long until I can put the frogs in? The silicon said 24 hours for full cure. Is that fine? Thanks
Research this thread. http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/parts-construction/35720-bio-seal.html After reading it I decided on GE silicone 1 and NOT GE silicone 2.I had a question regarding silicone as well. What type of silicone should we be using? Does it matter? I think I saw a pic of someone just using regular window silicone for the background. Is that ok, or should we only be using aquarium silicone only? It seems like this should be the case for the safety.
Thank you for that link. I'll be reading that to see what I can find out.Research this thread. http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/parts-construction/35720-bio-seal.html After reading it I decided on GE silicone 1 and NOT GE silicone 2.
Just read through it and there was good information about the two. I definitely see that GE Silicone I would be a safer bet then GE Silicone II. I am still uncertain about the difference between them and aquarium silicone as that wasn't really touched. There was a link to 3 other threads for different sites, so I will probably have to read those at some point to see if I find out more about the aquarium stuff.Watch for Eds info on Organotonins (probably massacred the spelling on that)
