    How long should I water test my aquarium after a reseal?

    I like to wait a week at minimum.

    I waited 10 days to let the silicone dry. Then I filled it up with water and let it sit a week. Then sold it. No leaks. Better safe than sorry

    Silicone cured for a week and a day. Guess I just need to be patient and wait to make sure there are no leaks.

    No, a week minimum to cure the silicone dry.
