So I silicones my aquarium yesterday and I used a 1/16inch spare or zip tie to then silicone into and after I was done it was perfect with no air bubbles at all and now after two day it has a thin strip of air in the center of the seal? Could this be because the silicone on the outside dryer faster causing it to shrink then pull the inside apart a little? I cleaned everything with acetone before assembling with rubber gloves on and with long free towels so I know the surface was clean and also when I was done siliconing the whole thing it had no air bubbles in the seal so I have no clue how it got there :/

Forgot to add that I did not fill the tank up or anything and that this is the second day of curing using tv 108 silicone. If you guys think it's ok I'll just finish the bottom and all I can do is water test it for a week and see what happens
