Hi all! Wifey bought some Elmer's Hi-Tech Adhesive called Stix-All.

Best for: General bonding where flexibility, resistance to heat, cold and water are important and only medium strenth is required.

So what's your take on this glue! Reef Safe or not!:)

My opinion is that if it is dishwasher safe, it isn't going to break down in water. Also, if there is no potable water aplication warning- I would give it a shot if you can allow it to cure in a dry place befor hand.

I would take the risk, I think it is very low. Just my opinion Johnny, I have never used the stuff.

Icebears right, Silicone releases acetic acid(vinegar) during cure) what exactly are you gluing?
cured Silicone is ok and you can even use for small wet opatches, but it talkes longer to cure up. Not advised for living animal s
Epoxy and cyanocyalate is fine
