- Jurassic Gel 4540 Reef Adhesive
Why does BRS recommend this?
Jurassic Gel is great for aquascaping with live rock in a dry tank. The large 200 gram tube allows you to liberally use the super glue to make an ultra-stable aquascape. The glue is just thick enough to bridge small gaps and gives a much more natural look than epoxy putties.
High strength clear adhesive for your saltwater aquarium from Paleo Bond. Use Jurassic Gel as a structural adhesive for your aquarium live rock and for attaching coral frags. Full cure in several hours.
- 20g tube has built in applicator
- 200g tube comes with 2 applicators
Worked better than expected By Quentin on 5/15/2018Quentin would recommend this product to a friendUsed maybe a quarter of the tube to adhere around 150 lbs of dry live rock in my tank. Made solid joints and not an eyesore. Came with two tips so you can use it more than once.
Short Cure Time By Joey on 3/27/2018Joey would recommend this product to a friendJust a tip for the people who's concern is long cure time, all you have to do is mist the glued area with some RODI water and the glue will harden in a few hours. Not a big deal IMO, this glue is great! Much stronger than your typical coral glue.
Long cure time By Steven on 12/7/2017Steven wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI just used this product last night. After setting for 12 hours I attempted to move a section of new dry rock I glued together. The rock separated and the glue was still tacky.
This product may be fine when used with an accelerator or for 2 pieces of rock with smooth surfaces that can be held together with a thin layer of glue. Trying to use it to glue larger rough sections of rock together has been problematic.
Does the job! By Ferrell on 11/20/2017Ferrell would recommend this product to a friendCouple of helpful hints:
-Get the accelerator this stuff takes forever to set. Can’t hold it long enough. After accelerator BAM DONE!
-wear gloves when even thinking about using this stuff, even one thing. You will get it on you and it’s a pain to scrape/cut off. Trust me on this one. Gloves are cheap.
All in all very pleased
Not worth it By Matt on 8/22/2017Matt wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFor the price, I expected something that would dry quickly to allow me to aquascape my dry rock. But instead it needed to dry overnight, which isn't very helpful if you want to join 20 pieces together and need the lower tiers to dry before you solidify higher ones. Save your money and buy some cheaper stuff at the hardware store.
Does the job By Michael on 3/5/2017Michael would recommend this product to a friendThe glue is great for anything that does not involve water. I bought it to security my rock work and frag ad it did the jobs after fighting with it. Best used outside the tank and a few hour to kill. It is super fast at bonding to skin and easy to peel off skin
Slow Setting But Good By Zachariah on 2/8/2017Zachariah would recommend this product to a friendI think it's called Jurassic Gel because by the time it dries you'll be a fossil. Once it does dry it's nice and strong. Definitely grab the accelerator if you are impatient like me. Big tube is a good size as well.
This stuff works By RobertP on 12/24/2016RobertP would recommend this product to a friendPretty happy with this stuff. It dries nice and slow without an accelerator but it does dry.and bond well.
Jurassic Gel & Insta-Set prefect together By Philly Phish on 10/28/2016Philly Phish would recommend this product to a friendI purchased 400g of Jurassic glue and 4 oz of Insta-set accelerator to do some aquascaping for my new 120g aquarium. Wow, the Fuji live dry rock bonded in seconds the first phase of my aquascaping is nearly complete. Took hours to figure out how I wanted the aquascape to look and mere seconds to bond. I have limited experience with this product, but seems as if bonding corals to frag plugs or wet live rock should be an issue either in or out of the tank. Very happy with both products!
Great Product By Michael on 1/27/2016Michael would recommend this product to a friendI just used this when re doing my tank with Walt smith 2.1 rock. I created two large towers with one of the towers having a nice arch coming out of it. Make sure you buy the accelerator as well though, it really makes a difference.
I used fiberglass rods too on the arch just to be safe and it held really well.
Ok product By Shaun on 1/17/2016Shaun would recommend this product to a friendI used this glue when putting together a 190 gal tank with dried pukani, worked great for aquascaping while rocks are dry, I tried using it to glue some frags onto rocks after tank was up and running, no go, not very good underwater, I tried several times just souldn't get a bond to rocks no matter what I tried.
Well Worth it By Brian on 11/18/2015Brian would recommend this product to a friendI was having an issue with aquascaping some dry rock. I was using the 2 part putty and I could not get it to stay the way I wanted. so, I ordered the Jurassic glue since I knew I needed a lot. This glue was great it bonded my rock work together quickly and with a very strong bond. Tip for any users if you add a very small amount of baking soda the glue is rock hard and solid in under a minute..... happy reefing

Can Jurassic Gel be used on rock after it has been cycled? I purchased dry live rock and need to cycle it before gluing in place.
Is this glue composed of cyanoacrylate?
Have a great day!
Does this cure underwater? Or do I have to take out my live rock from the tank?
Super Glue will cure very rapidly underwater. We do not recommend putting the tube underwater since it will clog the tip very quickly. If you can either, do a large water change to expose the rocks, then glue them into place, and filling the tank back up will help cure the glue faster too. We actually like using epoxy when we need to work with an adhesive underwater that we cannot remove from the water since it doesn’t react to saltwater like super glue does.
Can u use this product in a tank with wet live rock without cycling or curing again
This can be used in an established tank with live rock to hold it together even while wet. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
