Ive always used puddy fir gluing my corals to my rocks. But im getting tired of the white puddy left over on my rocks that i have to pry off when i move corals or what not. Ive used glue in a local reef store when i do trades or bring him in some corals i usually use his glue and put em on pligs.

But im also tired of spending 10$ per stick of the puddy i use. And the liquid glue in the local stores isnt much cheaper or about the same price


I noticed when in the dollar store the other day they had tons of super glue for just a 1$. Like packs if 4 small tubes. It said it was cyanoarilyte or however you spell it. Thats the same stuff in these expensive glues.

Thoughts ?

JB water weld, although it mixes up white, but coralline soon takes over.

Loctite super glue gel(but any cyanoacrylate will work). Make sure you use the gel kind, and the regular is just too thin.

Dollar store stuff works fine.

Exactly! About every 2mos I grab a fist full of these combo packs off DollarTree's shelf. I don't even count how many i grab in my hand but its usually 5-7 three packers. I use this stuff for a bunch of different projects, tank, house, car, whatever.

Its inexpensive and works great

DollarTree is also a great place for AA AAA batteries. They last about 75% of what Duracell do BUT are very inexpensive. Like 40cent on the $1 for Duracells

I personally keep my local DollarTree open buying superglue, batteries, bleach, windex and lost sunglasses Lololololololololol
