It is the same super glue that RC model airplane builders use. CA (Cyano Acrylate) is what it is called. Just plain ol' super glue. You can use gel or thin. I think gel works better.

 

 

100% true on the post. I even know of a few that go buy the epoxy from HD. Just go get some SG and go at it. What are you looking at glueing? I have used both and find that the epoxy works better for almost all of the frags. The only time I like to use the SG is when I am gluing a frag to a plug. If it is going on a rock then tr to use epoxy.

I have used the stuff that is green with a white center. Plus also the stuff you get at HD not sure what the name is. But now am using the stuff from D&D. Bought my first batch from Waves then the second from Upscales as Waves was out. I will not use anything else after the D&D stuff. The great thing about it is that it is purple so it looks like coraline and works great. It may cost a little more but in our hobby who can complain(laugh)

I use Aqua-Mend epoxy. HD carries it. They also have the gel CA in big multi-packs

 

Thats the stuff from HD:D But the only thing is it does not turn purple(sad) I just like the D&D stuff as it just blends in to the tank and looks like it was meant to be there. I am using it to glue a few pcs of rock together in my new system.

I use super glue gel in the blue tube or the green with a white center epoxy. With the gel I typically have to use a lot of it to break the surface tension to get the frags to stick under water, and to make sure my bulldoser of a turbo snail doesn't knock stuff around.

Usually they are spoken under my breath as my youngest is normally by my side working on the tank with me. She usually gets a kick when Daddy superglues his fingers together. Oh, I got in a bit of trouble once for supergluing the dog :( the dog is interested in the tank as well and he always stands under me as I put glue on the frags...a few drops landed on his back. I'm a bit more careful now. (sorry dear wife, I'll not superglue the doggy again)!
