Mr. Sticky's Underwater Glue 1.06 oz Color: White
I tried using superglue to sick some monti caps to the rear glass, but superglue just didn't stick for long. I also tried putty epoxy, but those don't really stick, just get hard. I had pretty much given up, but wanted to try this. I mixed it very well, put it on a frag disk without a stem and stuck that on the cleaned glass. Keep in mind this stuff takes at least a day to dry, so I also put a dab of superglue on the plug to keep it in place.
The frags (which included a 6"x8" cap) are still attached. I have not pulled on the bond, but it looks pretty tough. I used this in a stocked reef tank, clams and SPS, I saw no issues at all and my skimmer didn't overflow. From what I know there is nothing else that is "sticky" to use in a reef tank if superglue doesn't cut it.

Found this to be very effective glue. I tried several other products but so far this one is the best especially for rubber piping as several I tried wont bond to rubber. So far after several months all piping including from my overflow box and rubber tubing connected to my return pumps have held without any leaking at all (including submerged glue in saltwater). Only problem is this glue is a little hard to apply because you have to mix the two parts together to activate it. The best way for me was to dispense some on a paper towel, mix them, then apply to the area using a couple of Q-tips. When you are done its then easy to throw away with no mess. On the bright side though the unused glue lasts a long time even after opening as long as it isnt mixed. Overall best glue by far that I have found for all my tank plumbing.

Make this your FIRST choice!
I used several different products in an attempt to fix a leaking bulkhead on my 150. Nothing worked. This stuff is phenomenal. Worked immediately. I bought an extra just for back up. Well worth the price.

Mr. Sticky's Underwater Glue is FANTASTIC!!!!
Today, I opened the aquarium stand to my 150 gallon freshwater tank to retrieve a fishnet. To my surprise, the bottom of the stand was soaked!!! Not good : ( I have never had this happen before, so of course I panicked but I remembered that about 3 years ago, I bought a tube of Mr. Sticky's Underwater Glue, just to have on hand for emergencies...3 years later, the emergency popped up. I used this stuff all along the bottom seam of the aquarium which is where the leaks were and it worked immediately!!!
Totally sealed off the leaks, so I didn't have to drain and empty out my tank , seal with Silicone and refill. Simply ran this glue all along the bottom seams of the tank and the leaks were gone. Needless to say, I will be buying about 4 more tubes of this glue to have on hand for my other aquariums. As far as I am concerned, this is a MUST HAVE and I definitely recommend keeping it on hand. Also, the only place I have found this product is on Dr.'s Foster & Smith.. Thanks Dr.s Foster & Smith and Mr. Sticky...you saved my butt today :)
