Has anybody ever used GE Silicone I for bath with mildewcide in it accidentally? And if so how long did you let it cure or cycle until it didn't kill fish. I can't believe the toxin leaches forever, I used this to adhere my foam background that I have so many hours in I just can't face tearing it out and starting over. I'm willing to wait it out for a long time if time will do the trick. Also, would draining it dry be better than leaving it full and changing water a lot be better.

You might be better off asking how long will it last before having to re-caulk a bathroom. I would think it lasts a long time. How toxic is it to fish? That I don't know.

Seems to me that caulking is made with longevity in mind. I would have to assume (really big word, assume) that the mildewcide would be effective nearly as long as the caulking would be.

the mildewcide will leach as long as any of the caulk is exposed to the water... best to cut it out and use the right stuff..... just saying
