You can utilize the Insta-Cure Cyanoacrylate super glue in an established reef tank without any issues. Some people do notice that different types of adhesives may cause their skimmer to go nutty for a few hours but your livestock should not be hindered in any way.
Super glue (cyanoacrylate) is widely used for mounting coral frags to plugs, rocks, and what ever you may need to attach them to. Super glue can also be used to bond rock work when aquascaping for a seamless look. We find that if larger gaps are needed to be bridged when aquascaping either building up layers of glue, or placing a smaller rock that fits in the gap and then gluing over the top works really well. Usually when using super glue with aquascaping we will take a small amount of large grain sand to help give the glue some texture and blend it into the rock as well.
Best Glue Ever By Lacy on 9/1/2016Lacy would recommend this product to a friendI have been using ic-gel for years.Tried other glues and they either dry out or clog and you can't get them to unclog. I don't even bother trying other glues anymore. I will only use this glue. I buy 5 or 6 at a time since my husband now uses it in the garage.
Great stuff! By Landon on 8/26/2016Landon would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff works great for thicker application needs such as mounting a fresh SPS frag on a plug upright and for creating an underwater bubble and using it to fortify things on my live rock and corals. I would not recommend using it to frag soft corals, the thinner "regular" glue works better for that purpose in my experience, it bonds better. Mushrooms will come loose more often using the gel. It's best to have some of both types!
Great Glue By Will on 8/14/2016Will wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have used putty and the cheap glue that comes with my frag kit. This glue works great... My gobby and snails have not knocked off my pieces fragged like before. Well worth the little money
Excellent By Lukas on 7/1/2016Lukas would recommend this product to a friendMetal tube doesn't suck back in air or water. Sets fast, holds tight and hasn't let go yet. I loved the fact that my tube came with two tips because we all know the cap is getting stuck to at least one of them.
Best glue I have ever used By Mike on 6/3/2016Mike would recommend this product to a friendDoesn't clog, doesn't let go. Best glue I have ever used. Sets up really fast in water and doesn't let the frag go when it's set.
Make sure that you don't leave glue on the tip when screwing the cap back on! I wasted half a tube once that way lol
This is the only glue I will use now.
Used many others By Adam on 4/24/2016Adam would recommend this product to a friendUsed many other coral glues and this is by far my favorite. Very thick compared to others.
Very pleased and you can cap it after use and it will be fine the next time you open it.
Good for frags and aquascaping. By SithRico on 4/18/2016SithRico would recommend this product to a friendI like this glue because it seems extra thick. With the accelerator it cures quick, so you don't have to hold it so long in weird angles. Does good under water too. Make a bubble of it on a toothpick under water and then pop it and it sets in seconds.
Exceeded Expectations By Sbappe on 3/23/2016Sbappe would recommend this product to a friendI really didn't have high hopes for this. I'm getting tired of using the dollar store gel super glue and going through 1 tube per frag so I decided to get something else a try. I'm a cheapwad so I chose to try this product. Figured at the worst I was out a few bucks and would continue using the dollar store stuff.
To my pleasant surprise, this stuff works better than the stuff I was using. It's basically the same thing, just a gel superglue but the primary difference is the size of tubes and tips. It is definitely quite a bit larger of a bargain than the cheap stuff I was using. This tube is going to last me at least twice as long as $7 worth of the other stuff. The tips are also awesome. The cap actually works in preventing the tip to dry out and just in case you accidentally forget to screw the cap on properly for some reason one time, it comes with a second one for backup. Glues frags down as good as you could ask for, don't even have to use putty anymore for most situations. Also works for gluing the frag to the plugs. This is my new go-to glue unless a day comes when I find something that's an even better value for this cheapwad.
