Spray glue SAFE??

Postby Steven mc » Wed Mar 06, 2013 6:50 pm

Hi,
Does anyone know if there is a aquarium safe spray glue? I've looking to join 1inch thick aquarium sponge
together to make it 2inch to use as aquarium deviders, it was £100 for the 2inch and £50 for the 1inch and i don't dont need the full size it came in 2000mm by 1000mm.

Cheers steven

Don't know about spray glue but wouldn't that cover the whole surface and restrict circulation. That would seem to be a pity because if the water can flow through you get a lot of bonus filtration.

i know super glue is safe - reef keepers use it to attach stuff to rocks. You can actually get stuff branded for aquarium use. Don't know if it differs other than having a picture of a Nemo on the packaging and being more expensive.

Other options could be blobs of silicon or you could sew them together with a bit of fishing line.

I've sewn two bits to see, it works fine but I was just wondering.

Hi Steven,

When I was in the process of building my tank setup I asked the same question, but on a different forum (before I found/joined this fantastic site, I hasten to add! :wink: ). The majority of answeres were a flat 'No', but without any definitive (scientific) answer as to why not...

In the end I used aquarium silicone, but I'd certainly be interested to know for future reference. Anyone?

Cheers

Try tangit or similar

The marine keepers are always gluing things together

Keep well away from anything with a warning to aquatic life
