Try keeping it someplace warm and dry.

Have you tried rinsing with water? I mean it's already dried, sometimes you just have to rinse it with water so the smell goes away.

something is wrong, silicone can't take that long to cure. either get different stuff or use the weld on 16 that rick and I told you about.

I agree. Even in suboptimal conditions, it should be fine by now. If you're still smelling vinegar, then I think you got a bad batch. I'd clean it off and try either the weldon or superglue.

I don't think I would use super glue but the weld-on will never come apart

Undoubtedly, weld-on is the perfect choice because it fuses the acrylic at a molecular level, essentially making it one piece. But superglue is pretty amazing stuff, and safe to use even underwater (provided you don't squirt it on your fish).
