good for frag plugs, bad for attach directly to the rock By MG on 1/12/2015

This glue works great if you are fragging out the water but if you want to glue coral directly into the rockscape better use the ecotech one, this glue doesn't hold the corals very well.
Mixed review By Clayton on 12/30/2014

The BRS extra thick gel itself gets 5 stars! It is exceptional! The containers need redesign. I have always used the bottles for years and would recommend going with it. But the bottle gets really hard to use when there is 20% left in it. No problem, I gave the tube a try. It was even worse. The first day of fragging the tube worked great! But a week later, the tip was clogged and unusable. So I was forced to use it coming out of the tube itself, which caused way too much glue to be used.
So in short I highly recommend the gel itself, and would suggest the bottle, but they need to find a more flexible bottle that is easy to squeeze and use all of the product. I would not recommend the tube to anyone unless they are gluing 100+ frags in one sitting.
Works much better than super glue! By Sapelo on 12/29/2014

We thought problems with super glue were part of the hobby. Silly us! We have been thrilled with this glue and highly recommend it.

As good as any other thick gel but better value. Bottle doesn't clog.
Greate Value By mm.Reefs on 12/11/2014

Greate Quality/Value. This glue is perfect for mounting frags to plugs outside of water. For underwater use you should use more than other brands and the surfaces should have some porosity for it to stick to more efectively. Fair buy for the value.
Sticks to everything even underwater By Tek on 11/25/2014

It is thick and has good holding power. I was able to glue frags to rocks, overflows, back glass. Even a large 5" X 6" acro colony stuck to the side of a rock.
I will recommend this extra thick version over the regular gel glue.
Worked well By The reefdrunk on 11/17/2014

Took a little longer to dry then I hoped. But it did do the job. Just make sure the pieces you are glueing are dry. I took a hair dryer to mine for a few seconds. Then handled them carefully for about 2-3 minutes.
Thick, but not Super. By Randy on 11/16/2014
Randy wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Wasn't impressed by this glue. The "bang-for-buck" is there, but once this glue hits water, it's done for. Would not adhere frag plugs to rock work. Probably great for other non-reef related applications.
Disappointed By Hasty on 11/9/2014

+Tried using this glue to attach dry live rock together. It failed to bond the rock even after a prolonged period. On top of that, there is no pin or device to keep the nozzle clean on the bottle type so ended up tossing it. Fortunately I had a tube of bsi ic-gel that came with a fragging kit I bought and this glue did work and the cap contains a prong that keeps the tube spout open. BRS has some great products but not this one.
Awesome product By Daniel on 10/28/2014

This stuff is super thick and perfect for adhering every type of coral to frag plugs and live rock. I use this in conjunction with purple reef epoxy to glue my frags to rockwork. You really can't beat the value of this product! It lasts a long time with regular usage. I feel like I glue a lot of frags to my rockwork and cut a few frags a month and it lasts me 4 months easily.
Great Product By mattg on 9/23/2014

Put it on rock or frag plug out of the water and place it quickly in tank and don't move for a few seconds and it will hold. Apply under water you have to move plug back and forth to break bubble then hold for a minute. Great glue
