Tiling floor around bathtub
I agree the gap should be caulked. I do not recommend silicone though. Most people would make a royal mess of it, plus you're limited to the colors you can get.
I recommend leaving an 1/8" (+-) gap and using a caulk color to match the floor grout. Matching caulk is available from all grout manufacturers, including both unsanded and sanded varieties.
