Fauna Marin AquaScape Fix will change how you frag and aquascape. The reusable adhesive comes in a pellet form that when added to hot water will melt into an easy to use putty that will solidify when it cools in your tanks water. Any extra can be cooled and reused at any later date.
Three Sizes Available:
- 250 mL - Perfect size occasional fragging and mounting
- 500 mL - Ideal size for smaller aquascapes and extensive fragging and mounting
- 1000 mL - Excellent size for larger aquascapes and commercial aquaculture facilities
Do not microwave or apply to a direct heat source
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.
- Seawater Research Lab Tested
- 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.

Not easy to work with By Woody on 2/13/2020Woody wouldn't recommend this product to a friendDoes not form an easy to mold mass of glue in my experience. Just a giant sticky mass that is impossible to shape or place. Very frustrating.
STAY AWAY By Mark on 1/6/2020Mark wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis stuff breaks down over time. All of my rock structures fell apart.
Absolute junk By Jeff on 10/25/2019Jeff wouldn't recommend this product to a friendImpossibly difficult to work with. After several legit attempts, we had this junk everywhere except where we wanted it. It was evident that any exposed compound would have been hideous in the tank anyway. But fortunately, it doesnt stick well and we were able to pick the errors right off the rock. Tank became so cloudy from messing with the rocks in the sand that we gave up. Dont waste your money. BRS should pull this product.
Sticks to everything except aquascape By Angelo on 10/10/2019Angelo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI want to like this but exceptionally frustrating. Doesn’t stick to aquascape well and focus wadily come apart no matter how much one uses. Better options
BIG MISTAKE! By Stephen on 6/15/2019Stephen wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI do aquarium builds for a living and used this product on a ton of my clients projects and after about 6 months, it disintegrated, causing the rock work in every single tank I used it in to crash down and fall apart. Scratched glass from falling rocks, broken coral, tons of my lost time repairing, and a lost trust from my clients. The damage has been priceless and it has hurt my reputation.
Furthermore, every tank I have used this product in has reported a high level of Tin on a Triton test.
Fauna Marin should have gone through more extensive testing phase before marketing it out to people who trust them to create a suitable product for the job. NOT happy at all. Hobbyist have been eagerly looking for a product that works better than standard plumbers putty or super glue, but this is not it. I would pull this from the shelves, this product is a major fail and will wreck your tank in many ways.
Great for about 16 months, and then... By Paul on 4/28/2019Paul wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI was really impressed with this product at first, I was able to build a really nice aquascape that seemed invincible! Now, 16 months later, it’s starting to fall apart. I’ve had a major incident with my centrepiece ‘floating legde’ falling, at a cost of some ‘accidental frags’ and major disruption. Now other parts are also falling apart and I am struggling to triage the issue.
I wouldn’t recommend this product for any major aquascaping, and I am not sure I’d recommend for any minor work either.
I honestly thought I was on to a winner with this product, but I will never use again.
OK will try again By Steve on 9/2/2018Steve would recommend this product to a friendI got this and "melted" it in warm water per the instructions on the canister. No help, no good. The product is from Denmark, so something must have been lost in translation, as warm water does absolutely nothing to melt the granules. So I placed them instead in boiling water, and they turn immediately to a clear, glue like gel. Will retry in the coming weeks with what now, to me, is a completely different product. Warm versus Boiling!
Works but..... By Ant on 2/3/2018Ant wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI REALLY wanted to like this stuff. I applied some to part of my scape and it did hold very well. People complain about it not sticking and they're right it doesn't stick. You have to mold it around the rocks you're attempting to join. After it cures it'll be legit, but it also leaves it exposed to view and that is my main problem with this stuff. It's SUPER GLOSSY WHITE!!! Distractingly so and NOTHING will grow on it so even after a few months it's still as visible as the day it went on. Folks say it should be purple. I really doubt this would solve anything as then you'd just have this shiny purple mass on your rocks. Stick with epoxy, folks. Little messier and takes a bit more work, but until something better comes along (which this aint) it'll be my go to. -A
Doesn't last By Reemat12 on 12/28/2017Reemat12 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAt first I thought it was great, held everything in place and allowed me to create some great looks. After being in the tank for 6 months bonds would separate and structures would fall.
Yes, it does work By Mark on 11/20/2017Mark would recommend this product to a friendI used this to create a bonsai-inspired aquascape with rocks that were already in my tank. Once you understand how to turn the pellets into the putty (it took a few tries but ended up just using boiling water), this stuff was great. Since the rocks I were bonding were already wet after removing them from my tank, I made sure to leave plenty of time for the product to set. I ended up creating an aquascape that was over 30 lbs and made of 7 different rocks that I could pick up with one hand. Looking back, I won't use as much of the putty because this stuff holds so well.
Terrible. By specialk on 2/27/2017specialk wouldn't recommend this product to a friendStuff does not stick. At all. Total waste of money ... I should have just used some bubble gum instead - in fact I seriously think gum would work better then this product.
Good, but could be great By Dustin on 2/1/2017Dustin would recommend this product to a friendI LOVE the fact that this is reusable - it's easy to apply, holds well (even though it isn't sticky), doesn't mess with the skimmer, etc. - it's great! There's only one shortcoming in my opinion - it's STARK WHITE. Making it coraline purple or even aged rock grey would make this the obvious choice.
