Tank silicon dropping off?

Hi everyone, I bought a 1.5ft tank few days ago. Last night I moved my CT in it, I saw him nibbling white things and spitting it out.I was a little afraid so I moved him to a temporary container. I found out the white things were silicons dropping off when I put water in the tank. So the question is, what should I do to prevent silicon dropping off? And what will happen if betta ate the silicon? Thanks alot, have a nice day

Thats... interesting? Maybe the materials used to create the tank are defective? I guess its a question of how long you've had the tank. If its new... I'd return it to where-ever for a refund or replacement. Otherwise, I don't know if theres anything to repair the currently 'corroding' silicon.

If its tearing at one point though, can you really trust that it wont in other areas as well? Sorry I couldn't help more =( Still inexperience to this as well.

I got the tanks 3 days ago. My CT is currently in a 2g tank. it kinda drop off every area bit by bit. tiny bits kept dropping off. I thought of using it as a breeding tank. Would it be dangerous for the fries in it? Thanks for the help
