  1. Default How long cure time for 3/8" to 1/2" thick silicone?

    I've just covered the rear two 'clear' silicone seams on my tank with a layer of black silicone to hide them better. Thickest points for the new silicone are probably 3/8" but to be on the safe side I'm gonna say there may be places that are a full 1/2" thick.

    What would be the cure time for a 1/2" thick silicone layer before I can safely put water back in and begin the tank again?

    At a minimun 24 hours. This depends on the temp and humidity where you are. To play it safe 48 is better.

    I've gotten advice to rinse a lot after the silicone cures. First time I've heard this. Is this suggested or necessary?

    Did you use a silicone like Marineland aquarium silicone? IF yes then no need to rinse in my opinion. when i glued magnets to make my moss wall I let it cure 36 hours to be sure it was cured. on thicker beads more time is needed for total cure as the surface will cure but not the deeper part.
