I let it dry for almost 3 days. Tube said 48 hours. I just tested water and it said ph 7.5 ammonia less than .25 which is understandable since there was 8 dead fish in there. And 0 nitrite. I haven't tested nitrate because it didn't seem critical. I removed all the living fish and put them back in the temporary tank. The tank was happy and healthy and fully cycled until wed when it started leaking now I've lost half my fish and have a tank that I don't know where to go from here.

First I've heard of this, anything else new with the tank other than resealing it any signs of sickness I've seen a lot of people use ge 1 with out any issues was it the clear silicone or colored any new fish

It was the clear. Nothing is new in the tank. I did have a few fish that were new from before the leak but now they're all dead. As well as a few that I've had for a year. I'm considering a water change and adding a couple tetras that are still alive to test it. But that seems cruel.

Could be random could be just a bad batch or from the stress of moving around or a parameter spike of some kind

What would you do next. I'm considering a water change. It seams like I used the right stuff so I don't think they are poisoned but I'm not sure I can't test for poison. This is the week from hell.

I would do a large water change and keep an eye on the rest

Did you get the mildew resistant silicone for kitchen and bathrooms? That silicone is deadly to use in aquariums.
