    I'm in the process of creating my own nano aquarium decorations. I'm using a variety of safe substances such as crafting plastic mesh, rocks (tested and cleaned), glass, foam, and so on. I know that hot glue doesn't have the staying power in an aquarium setting. My question is what kind of...
  2. Equipment
    Anyone here used Juwel's Conexo glue? I'm wondering if it's safe to use inside a stocked tank. As in, gluing stuff underwater, in the tank, while there are animals in it. I mailed them about it and got the answer that it's safe to use in fish tanks, etc, but I'm worried that they might not have...

    I'm about to set up a new aquarium, and would like to attach riccia to my driftwood. Given my past experience tying down java moss to driftwood in another of my aquariums, I would like to try to contribute less to my swear jar. I've tried googling, and looking through past posts here, but I'm...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I recently got a container of all-purpose glue. It dries with an annoying consistency that reminds me of tacky glue. Anyway, I was wondering if it was invert-safe. Also, it's Loctite Trimethoxysilane glue... I'm reading mixed things on other forums: Either it's "okay but it will slowly...
  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So basically what the title asks, is the Carpenter version (not the regular stuff found at elementary school) of Elmers glue (for wood) work in an aquarium? Is it non toxic? Is it water soluble? What are other options for aquarium safe adhesives that will work to glue wood together?

    I just ordered some fissidens fontanus. Last time I tried this moss it ended up all over the tank and I basically lost it all. I've heard you can glue it to driftwood. Could someone give me any tips? I also thought about using a hair net. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!:D
  7. The Lounge & Introductions
    I recently found a huge (4"!) aptasia anemone in my saltwater tank, on a smallish rock, and I wanted it dead. Here's what I did: I removed the rock, very slowly so as not to alarm the anemone and cause it to release babies. I then placed it in a container with a bit of tank water, aptasia side...

    So I have 2 CRS, 2 OEBT, 4 RCS, 1 Amano, 1 FM Betta, 2 Otos, and 1 BN Pleco in my Ebi. Got some nice driftwood that's been soaking for a couple days. I heard that Gorilla glue was aquarium safe. But I know that shrimp are very sensitive, so... is it still safe for my tank? I glued a big rock to...
  9. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Does anyone know of ways to bond wood to wood that's aquarium safe? I'm trying to attach some twigs to another piece of driftwood. My plan is to drill some small holes and just shove the twigs in there, dry, and hope that the wood will expand when it's soaked to wedge them in. But it wouldnt...
