  1. "Soft" corals
    Hi Guys Hope someone can give me good news today. I have the shivers due to the stigma around the bellow mentioned coral and stupidly fraged some. Due to a heavy hand I have the following 2 questions. I totally covered a zoa polyp base with glue, not just the underside. Will this restrict the...

    I was thinking of going out to Home Depot or Lowe's and trying to get something to mount corals with. I've tried everything and they always come loose. As you all know I'm sure, it's a pain trying to mount corals where you want them when the spot isn't ideal for mounting. I'd have to disassemble...

  5. "Soft" corals
    I see that many people say that they glue their corals to rocks/glass and what not. Was just curious what kind of super glue anyone has used and any safety precautions for the aquarium to take. Any advice or comments welcome. Don't want my fish knocking over my corals.

    I bought some super glue, but it was kinda watery. Preferably, I'd prefer something I can use to stick a big glob on, and then stick it on a rock. Does anyone have a brand or specific product they recommend for this?

    Hello! My 125G came with all of the plumbing done by LFS. The return looks like vacuum hose glued into a bulkhead in the sump. The bulkhead is also about 3-5 inches above the water line, causing it to make plenty of noise. Pictures: I'm thinking about re-plumbing the system while doing a...

    I bought a Jason Fox chalice at a swap last weekend. Right now a small piece of tissue has died off exposing the white skeleton. I contacted the most knowledgeable guy in my area about it and he said to super glue gel the dead spot to cover the tiny exposed part which covers the skeleton and...

    Is Gs cement jewelry glue safe to glue frags to rocks? I'm curious because if it is I wanna just use that instead of going out and buying super glue.

    Whats the best option for gluing base rock? So far it seems Gorilla Glue wins because of its expanding factor. 2 part epoxy seems like the runner up since its strong but it doesn't expand. Any other better options? Keep in mind I'm gluing base rock (not live) so I'll have plenty of time for curing.

Just want to know if is going to be toxic after it is fully cured. There is information for each of the 2 parts on...
