Silicone cure time

I just purchased a new juwel rio 400 and moved the plastic filter canister to the other side of the tank.
(Removed the old silicone from the plastic case that was siliconed onto the glass)
Now that i have re-siliconed the plastic filter case onto the glass on the other side, how long should i wait before i can fill my tank up with water ?

48hrs. If possible... allows for full cure in most climates.
