I don’t really like the spray bottle the super glue accelerator comes in and wanted to be able to apply the accelerator directly to the glue joint. I know the accelerator is “safe”, however I would prefer to keep as much off the coral tissue as possible. It finally dawned on me to try a glass dropper bottle for application. I like this method so much better than the pump spray top that the brand I use is comes with. Sure there could be times when I may prefer to use the pump top but for working with frags and basic frag plugs/discs I’ll take the dropper any day.

The glass dropper bottles are pretty easy to find locally at pharmacies or AMAZON has smaller packs of two for $8.49

Thought I’d share the idea since it works so well for me and I didn’t get any results when I tried searching the forum about it.

That’s a great idea actually!
I’m not too worried about over spraying, but sometimes I feel like a more accurate method of applying would be better and less wasteful/messy.
I have an extra bottle with a dropper from some garlic additive that I can use.
Thanks for the tip!
