Thanks for the quick replies.
For the temp fix - sounds like it will do the job, but have never done it.
For real fix - yep, sounds right, cut it off and redo.
OK thanks, guess I'll pick up extra stuff too just in case.
Is it inside your tank or OUTSIDE?
If it sits INSIDE, it has to be NON-toxic & has to say it on the packaging.
If it's PVC for your filtration system & it's located outside, then it doesn't matter.
You could also use teflon tape instead.
Yup its for my filtration and its on the outside. Anything inside the tank I didn't even bother to glue.
