I used great stuff sealed with silicone topped off with ecoearth to fill the gaps between the cork i used for my background. I let the silicone cure for several days before planting but the viv still smells a little like silicone. It wasn't really noticable until I got it planted, turned the lights on, and sprayed it down. Has anybody else had problems with this? Thanks.

Is your enclosure acrylic? I've done several tanks like this over the years but the last 2 I did were made of acrylic and 4 weeks later I still have the smell. I usually let an enclosure sit for a couple months to allow plants and springtails to become established, so I am not too concerned. But this is the longest I have ever had the smell still in the tank.

I had the same problem with my first tank a couple weeks ago. I had to take the whole thing apart and leave it outside in the sun for a couple of days. let it really dry out. Remember to deplant the tank :wink:
