This epoxy starts off fairly sticky and can hold rocks together okay, but its best feature is when it is forced into rocks it will go into the holes and harden creating a very nice bond. The rock does not need to be cleaned first however if there is a ton of algae or build up manual removal would be a nice option to help build the bond quicker. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Many Different Uses
- Coral Fragging
- Reptile, and small animal habitats
Epoxy putty is widely used around the aquarium hobby because it is non-toxic and easy to use. The color of the putty allows it to blend in with its surroundings making it easier to hide than other types of adhesives used in aquariums. It is recommended to use a minimal amount since most corals will grow over the adhesive in a matter of weeks.
We suggest using and mixing small amounts at a time due to the quick setting nature of epoxy putties. On average you will have about 5 to 15 minutes of working time once mixing is completed. The epoxy cures in dry air, damp conditions, or even underwater.
Stone Grey - Great for new tank builds with fresh dry rock or new frag plugs.
Coralline Purple - Great for existing tanks that have coralline algae growing on rocks and you want to add frags or larger corals without noticing the epoxy
Did half my project well... By Billy on 3/28/2017Billy would recommend this product to a friendUsed this when aquascaping Tonga branches, did half the project well and the other half, well I had to redo it in my tank a few weeks later because it failed...maybe user error I don't know. But I would recommend it as I have used it several times before!
Great for dry aquascaping By Garrett on 3/11/2017Garrett would recommend this product to a friendI used 4 oz. of this to put together an otherwise impossible structure with about 30 lbs of Reef Saver Rock.
This putty holds like cement, but you need to make sure you clean off all the dust on your rock first, and really make sure you hold the rocks together tightly for 5 minutes to set a strong bond.
I have no idea how well this would secure rock that is live or wet, but for those looking to aquascape dry or outside of your tank, this stuff allows many rocks to become one amazing looking reef structure.
go to item By seagars on 12/20/2016seagars would recommend this product to a friendthis is my go to item when i need to secure floral to rocks. great color and consistency along with the price!!!
My favorite epoxy By Dave G on 12/16/2016Dave G would recommend this product to a friendGet more product for the price compared to the ocean wonders. Color doesn't make any difference to me.
I use this in conjuction with super glue gel. Use this to form around the area. Once hardened follow up with super glue gel now that it has lots of surface area to crab.
I don't run a skimmer so non-issue for me but it does cause to overflow. If you have a air valve reduce the air on your skimmer. Will be back to normal after 24-48hours.
Blends in well By Rich on 12/10/2016Rich would recommend this product to a friendI use the gray as it blends in really well even on coralline colored rocks. The purple/red does not blend in at all. It makes your slimmer go nuts if you have a smaller tank, but all epoxy will do that. Dries rock hard, good product
Did not work By Joshua on 6/27/2016Joshua wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMakes protein skimmer go nuts and does not hold together heavy rocks. Super Glue would work in combination with this better.
Nice product that does the job very well. By Damon on 6/20/2016Damon would recommend this product to a friendWorking time is just as advertised... not very long. This can be very good for mounting corals as one doesn't have to hold those corals in place for such a long time. I use this in combination with BRS super glue gel to really get a good hold. I like that the color makes it much less conspicuous than other putty. I used gloves as I didn't want to get this stuff all over my fingers. Again, works very well and the price is pretty ok. I went through almost the whole tube in one go and only had a little extra action on my skimmer. I didn't bother to adjust it. Wasn't a big deal.
Love this stuff! By LH on 5/9/2016LH would recommend this product to a friendUsed this in the tank to secure corals. Used it out of the tank on dry rock to create aquascape. Also used this in wet rock taken out of the tank. It dried quickly and the red blends nicely. I would repurchase.

Good for aquascape By Dr. Zoidburg on 4/17/2016Dr. Zoidburg would recommend this product to a friendI used this stuff to do a whole aquascape, no water in tank yet. So I dont know how skimmer will be. Hardens like a rock. A little does go a long way. It helps to hold rocks in place as it sets at the same time kind of press it to the rock. It will be a great bond that way. I did a test on an old piece of mirror. It binds to it as if it were a part of it , near impossible to get off unless there is a solvent I didn't try that. Good on the other hand if you don't mind gluing it to the tank. So I just made kind of like little feet for the rocks to be stable. Just make a little ball where you want feet, mold it to the rock, and put it right down onto aluminum foil. The foil peels right off. The five min set time seems to come quick so work fast. I used nitrile gloves to mix. Use some rubble to hide the bonds, and it looks awesome wish I could post pictures of work. 210 Gallon scape :)
Works Great!! By Kman on 4/11/2016Kman would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff works great. Make sure to follow the Instructions. Mix it up before getting it wet. Make sure your hands are dry as when the putty is wet its harder to work with. I use this to mount coral to my rock very often. Buy some glue with it. Make a ball of putty. Put some glue on your frag and mash the putty around it. Then place a little glue on the bottom of the putty and then place and mold this to were you want to place the coral in your tank. BAM your done. Coral is glued down and not going anywhere. I've done this with flow running and without. Iv'e had success with it. Go with the coraline colored version. This will help blind in.
A standby for me By Carmen on 3/21/2016Carmen would recommend this product to a friendI like the product. Sometimes it does stick to my fingers a little too much, but I still think it's the best of its type. I use super glue with it and it sticks very well. For me, using them together makes the best results as the putty supports the rocks and the glue holds it all together. I have never had problems with my skimmer.
