Super glue gel? Is that safe for shrimps? O:
Do you have the specific brand that you use?

Are you dosing with ferts and what substrate are you using?

Sorry for the spamming if questions. LOL

Yep! It certainly is.

Dollar store superglue goes on wet surfaces and dries in like 20-40 seconds. Afterwards it can go in the tank immediately.

I used this method to attach pellia and mini Christmas moss. The pellia bounced back quicker than the Christmas moss.

As MABJ mentioned, super glue (the ingredient you're looking for is cyanoacrylate) is perfectly fine. I use gel because it gives me more working time - usually a minute or two.

The brand I use - because it's cheap at the local hardware store - is Super Glue. Usually about a dollar for two tubes.

No ferts. It's UP Aqua Shrimp Sand - if you scroll through the journal a bit, you'll see some information about it.

Nothing has changed, really, as these tanks are still the same.

Will likely update once I add livestock to the new one.

Whoops, forgot to mention that I moved some higher grade PRLs to the new 3gal:





They've been cleaning up the tank the past couple days.

Can you spot the sneaky Goldens?



Cleaned 19 of them out of the AC20. Guess they're getting in by climbing up.

Still need to trim moss and some Fissidens:



Om Nom Nom feeding time:



The PRLs in the new tank seem to be doing well:

This thread documents two of them.

I've got a few more but only have these two set up at the moment.

Guess who still hasn't trimmed that moss in the Golden/Snow White tank:



This little tank can clean up an Indian Almond Leaf in just a week or two:



Couple more shots:




PRL tank is growing in nicely:



Maybe I'll trim it when I get to the Golden tank.
