    HI Guys,

    I am busy with a little contraption that I would like to put into my tank but I need to use Super Glue on it - the normal stuff we get to mend anything at home, not the stuff used on coral fragging.

    Is this stuff safe to use in the tank ?

    Likely to affect any of the fishes, inverts, coral, etc ??

    to put stuff into the display tank (not the sump) ? That stuff stinks, does it not affect the fish at all ? I want to use it on a feeder for my Mandarin ....

    Superglue was developed as a quick way to glue human skin.

    These days they still use it in the medical field, its just called dermabond. A non allergenic version of superglue.

    ... so I assume the glue used to stick PVC pipes together is also fine ?

    I think so, it just takes longer to cure.

    Curiosity is killing me, what are you making
