6 tubes of silicon really doesn't look like much once you get it on there and see it from the back... I wish I'd have used 10

I let the silicon cure for 72 hours and put water in. Let that sit overnight. The water seemed very filmy on top so I did a full water change the next morning and installed fish and decor. Going great so far and the fish are very happy.

I am in the process of building a background myself. Do you know if there is a difference between the GE silicon I and GE silicon II? The label on the II says not for aquarium use. I was wondering if the silicon I says the same.

Yes there is a difference between GE l and GE ll silicone. GE ll silicone has stuff that makes it mildew resistant and it is NOT aquarium safe. GE l is 100% silicone with no extra stuff added and it is aquarium safe.

It looks really great. I'm pretty much pleased with mine. I wish I had put the filter intake and output differently.
