    Just wondering what brand works best for you to attach SPS...been using the 3M gel, but those small tubes runs out so quick. Also where do youll get the big tubes of superglue gel?

    I always end up using the cheap two tubes for like 1.46 from Lowes. I have probably been through fifty tubes gluing all of my corals in place.

    I've used the off brands also - just be sure that it is gel.
     
  5. I'm kind of new to the coral family. The glue does affect the water? I'm scared to put anything in my tank that I'm not fully sure that it's ok.

    Lost everything before and don't want to do it again.

    As long as it is "super glue gel" it will be nontoxic to your inverts and fish. I know someone who has even used that gorilla glue to glue rock together before the tank has water in it...... It is impossible to get it apart and once cured, it is nontoxic.

    check out garf.org. they did a study on super glue and carl mounting. I think they said to not use crazy glue. all other brands seem to do find, but they have their fav.'s
     
  10. I haven't found the gel to be toxic. I wish I could find a larger tube of the gel, though. I usually use the small tubes you buy at the dollar stores. YOu need like 2 tubes of it to attach one colony...if your lucky.
