acetic acid,Silicone curing effect on aquarium

Hi,
im going to be setting up a aquascape, a dry start HC carpet first however I keep dartfrogs terrarium, and when designing one I use pond foam and quite alot of silicone,a few tubs of silicone on the backgrounds and the room itís being built in will Stink of acetic acid while the silicone cures even with the windows wide open could these fumes be toxic to the aquarium and plants As it will be in the same about a metre away.

Put a box fan in a window blowing out , put a sheet of plastic over tank with fish or turn off air pumps if you are using them .

My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .

Probably it will be fine but to be safe you can run activated carbon in your filter while the silicone is curing. This is the same advice given to folks painting a room an aquarium is in.
