AquaScape Fix can be used to glue corals, rocks, or decorations in your fresh or saltwater aquarium. The pellets that make up AquaScape Fix are a unique composition that lets you mix work with it, forming and molding it into the particular shape and position you desire around your corals and rocks. AquaScape Fix does not leave your hands with any residue nor does it smell, and if you have ever worked with epoxy or superglue before you know how messy and smelly they can be.

- Doesn't stick to your fingers
- Shrinks as it cools creating a super-strong bond
How to use AquaScape Fix
Pour a small amount of warm water (over 110℉) into a portion of AquaScape Fix pellets and let them sit for a few seconds while they heat up, we like to use disposable coffee cups. The beads will turn from an opaque white to a clear jelly like consistency as they heat up. Scoop out the flexible AquaScape Fix and use it to bond corals to rocks, frag, or plugs. Holding the items being glued in tank water for a few seconds will allow the AquaScape Fix to cool and firm up quickly. Any remaining unused adhesive can be placed back in the original container for later use.
Tips: The viscosity can change as the pellets get warmer. For a thinner consistency use a warmer water and let them sit longer soaking up the heat.
Do not microwave or apply to a direct heat source

Works great, easy to work with By Scott on 12/25/2016Scott would recommend this product to a friendI bought the 1L jar to aquascape dry rock in a new 190 gal. It worked great. I used a small ball of it under a few base rocks on the bottom of the tank to keep them from wobbling. When connecting the rocks together, I would connect a few at a time and let them harden before connecting\stacking any more. The gel would stay flexible long enough (if warm enough) for me to affix two points on one side of a rock and lift up the other side to add the gel to the other side and press the rocks together. Once the gel was in place between two rocks I would press any that squeezed out back around the rock and generally would stick a couple of rock crumbs into it to help hide the joint.
Occasionally I would misplace the gel or I would mess around too long and it would firm up. I simply pulled it off and dropped it back in the warm water and reused it. Very easy to use. No mess and I can take as long as I needed to once I started. You don't have to worry about mixing up too much at once since any left overs can be cooled and used later.
I used water from a near-boiling water tap we have at the kitchen sink mixed with a little tap water to bring the temperature down. Then occasionally replaced part of the water with fresh near-boiling water as the water cooled (I was working for hours on the aquascaping).
Doesn't really work. By Tully on 12/12/2016Tully wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI had high hopes for this. The beads dissolve nicely into a moldable putty-ish glob. It seems like it would work great, but it doesn't stick to wet rocks, It sort of works if you can push and squeeze it into the nooks, holes and cracks but then it shrinks as it cools and pulls apart. I would send it back if I could. I'll stick to super glue gel.
5 star so far By RT on 12/8/2016RT would recommend this product to a friendI microwaved rodi water for a short time as hot tap water wasn't enough but it performs as advertised. Extremely clean, zero waste and no skimmer overflow. Only time will tell on its holding power but 5 star so far
Awesome product!!! By jsbull on 11/17/2016jsbull would recommend this product to a friendI put water in a coffee mug, microwaved it for 1.5 minutes, then poured the beads in. Within 3 minutes, they had turned clear. I then poured out the water and pulled the material out of the cup. It was ultra moldable and super easy to use to lock down my aquascape. It cooled down quickly and has held super tight.
I'm not sure how it would be removable, but if you can get it off, I have no doubt it's reusable.
I highly recommend it.
