Second time with this glue, first time I ordered the tubes-great, you can get all the glue out, then By mistake I ordered the bottles, after half is used no matter what u do u cannot get the glue out!! I had to cut the bottles open and scoop out the glue with a flat head screwdriver, never order the again!!!
Great glue, bad containers By Dennis on 5/15/2015
Dennis would recommend this product to a friend
Really like this glue, it works great! But the containers need work.
The bottle is the better of the two, but it needs a needle in the cap to help keep it from clogging. By the time I was down to 20% i couldn't get any more glue out.
Tried the tube next and that was just horrible! After one use the tip was clogged. The cap would glue itself to the tip. While fragging, the glue would keep coming out, wasting a lot of it. I have to keep trimming away at the tip to remove clogs and eventually remove it all together, which then allows way too much glue to come out. Never again. I'd recommend this product, but only the bottles and with reservation. Hopefully it can be redesigned soon because the glue works great! Only takes a little drop and 20 seconds to get an sps frag to hold to a damp plug.

I used a tube of this glue when I was aquascaping my reef. This glue is very thick and super strong. Some of the strongest glue I have ever used. I would imagine it would also be a great choice for gluing coral frags down also.

5.99 , can't complain! Super glue alone cost approx half the bottle of this for 5.99 in Hawaii..I love it!
Not fast, but TURBO shipping from Bulk Reef Supply's. The are the best in service!
Great glue By JJS on 3/11/2015

Very easy to work with, you can pretty much just put the frag into a little blob of this on a plug and it will stay there, no need to try to hold the frag completely still untill the glue takes hold. And you get a lot more bang for you buck.
Excellent! By William on 2/26/2015

Simple, cheap, does exactly what it says! Blob some one, submerge, walk away!

I first bought this glue awhile ago and have more on its way. It is easy to work with. The needle in the lid is a great addition and help avoid clogging. The only problem I had was because apparently I'm a little dense. After using half of the bottle I got frustrated because I couldn't squeeze the bottle enough to get more out. I stomped around awhile talking to myself about how it was so poorly designed. I then watched my wife use the ketchup bottle to get the last bit out. I sheepishly went back to the glue and smacked it down with its lid on and was able to continue using it.

I have tried them all and this super thick gel works great.
Good Glue By Nate on 1/13/2015

This glue went on easy and held well. I bought one bottle and one tube to try both out. My personal preference was the bottle since I thought it was a bit easier to control, but your mileage may vary.
Pretty good By shawn on 1/13/2015

Works well most of the time. Occasionally have to reapply. If a frag doesn't stick you can break the haze that immediately forms over glue and expose clear glue for a second or third try before having to reapply.
good for frag plugs, bad for attach directly to the rock By MG on 1/12/2015
MG wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
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
Clayton would recommend this product to a friend
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
mm.Reefs would recommend this product to a friend
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
Tek would recommend this product to a friend
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
Hasty wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
+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.

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

Payed twice as much for the SEACHEM REEF GLUE on amazon thinking it would be fine for a few small applications. WRONG. Had some horrible experiences trying to glue small frags into place. Taking 4-5 tries, getting glue all over the place, having it dry everywhere but the place where I needed it to. Had chunks all over the tank. Shrimp got it on his hands. Glue got on polyps. Tube cracked and ended up with glue all over my hands for weeks. Not re-usable since it doesn't seal fully after the first time you open it. Come on, you had one job...
The brs thick gel from the bottle was delightful to use. Pulled it out and glued precisely in minutes. No issues with sticking to things I didn't want it to. QUICK setting. At the low cost I am once again extremely satisfied with the care that BRS takes on all the products they stamp their name on. Stuff just works.
Don't worry about looking anywhere else, just buy a couple and call it a day!
