You can. Obviously you must let it cure out of water before adding your decor.

I would try another glue. Silicone does not hold good IMO.
I have repaired many fake plants (bases) with silicone and they come loose in no time.
I would look for an epoxy that is fish safe.
Also build your rock caves and only glue when you are 100% satisfied.

By all means use it then. I have not had good luck using it to glue things together. It has its uses. Gluing is not one of them IMO.

Silicone is the only glue used to hold back hundreds of pounds of water. The frames on glass tanks do very little. If used properly it's pretty stout stuff.
