    Anyone know if this stuff is reef safe? https://pollyplastics.com/collections/moldable-plastic

    It specifically states not FDA approved food safe on the website FAQ area but I'm pretty sure a lot of plastic isn't. The one reason I thought of using this is in the Neptune Apex Comprehensive Reference Manual here https://www.neptunesystems.com/downloads/docs/Comprehensive_Reference_Manual.pdf#page130

    They suggest using this http://www.aquahub.com/store/moldaholder9.html
    a moldable type of plastic for a ATO Bracket.

    I ordered a jug of this stuff anyway it's pretty awesome you can make anything with it and it's super forgiving considering you just reheat it to make it plyable again.

    This is what it looks like.

    My first DIY float switch bracket. (I know it's not pretty lol). But you can sand it and drill it so the possibilities are endless.

    Most of those pellets are polycaprolactone. @Randy Holmes-Farley can confirm, but I believe there's no issue with that.

    That's actually awesome. Thanks for the post.

    I mean probe holders, dosing tube holders, frag holders, lots of possibilities. I've never seen this stuff. I'm kind of excited to try it out.
