Silicone issue...

    So I came across this post because I did just this. I built my original sump and thought the silicone I had in the basement was the same but it is not. So I had the sump running for 2 days well almost 3. Didn't lose any coral... yet. But things have not been fully open etc. So anyway I got the sump out tonight and now I'm wondering how to deal with the problem. So I'll be doing a 50%+ water change tomorrow and then another one the next day or two. Got some pretty nice corals and I'm worried what should I do get them out in someone else's tank? Get them in clean water till I do water change? Or ride it out and just hope nothing happens ?

    If the sump is removed, then I'd just keep at the water changes until things start to look better. You might stress it all out more if you try and move them to a new tank
