Which I didn't mind too much as it just looks like dirty harbour water but worryingly it is doing this from the edges and seems to be progressing inward
Do you think this will progress, if so should I stripp it all off (assuming I can) then start again, any suggestions.
If you are to replace the water and start again. I would first find out the why of its discolouration. Cheap paint does not explain the why. It may have something to do with the chemicals used in the silicon. Once you know why, you can then avoid it next time.

Yes, I assumed it was the paint, because you said you used a cheap paint. What I am saying is, why did the cheap paint react that way. If you know that, then you can select any paint without that why in it.
I also referred to the silicone, in case you used a different brand. But it seems you used the same one as you have in the past.
My thinking is that the silicon reacted with the paint. Perhaps the paint is solvent, in some way, to what the paint consists of. If so, then there is something that the cheap paint does not have, or the expensive paint has, which resists that sort of reaction.
Of course, the simple solution is to go back to the paint you used before. But then, not knowing why, you will be restricted to that combination only.
