Brand of superglue to use?

Was planning on using superglue to fasten some peacock moss and I was wondering if anyone has had experience with particular brands. I've been using Loctite Quicktite Gel for a while with great success around the house and was wondering if that'd work. Or are all superglues the same? Thanks

I'm not sure about planted tanks but I use Loctite Quicktite Gel to attach coral frags in my saltwater reef, it is safe for that.

The only way to know for sure is to read the ingredients of each type your thinking about or go to the website of each brand that has one...

I would just stick to locktite I have used it with no ill effects on ceramic items placed into goldfish tanks.

Ditto - used it on corals, rock rubble, etc with no problems in a reef.

gorilla blue works... but it takes an hour to cure in air and it expands.

How do you keep the plants from drying out during the 1 hour drying phase of the blue?

A spray bottle is your best friend whenever you are doing a big rescape and/or anything like that
