NEW TANK : but can't fill untill?

hey guys.

yesterday went out and got a 4ft 55g tank and stand for under 100$ US new. with cover glass. but that catch was they tell me i shouldn't fill it wednesday. but i was allow to take the tank home with me.

i assume they make there own tanks and they just want ample time for the silicon to set and have no leaks right?

but how long should that really take? over 5 days? sounds bit much .

i do trust these guys, to me they are one of the the best LFSs in melbourne but is that waiting period a little over cautious?

TIA guys.

ps - the starfish. is alive and well, and ive just added 3 turbo snails to my clean crew, and one of these is busy eating aiptisias! what a champ!
