Ecotech Cg Coral Glue Review

Ecotech Marine has a relatively new product out called Cg Coral Glue. This is a cyanoacrylate gel that is used to glue coral frags to rocks or even to glue rocks to other rocks. I've worked with regular super glue before as well as various brands of coral putty for attaching corals to the rocks in my aquariums over the years. I recently finished the live rock wall build in the 120 gallon reef tank setup and wanted to place some coral frags on the back wall so I purchased the 295 ml bottle of the Cg Coral Glue for about $50 online. They also have a smaller bottle which is 75 ml and sells for around $20. Below is a short video on how to use it.

I was a little hesitant about shelling out $50 for this coral glue but given Ecotech's reputation for putting out solid products (vortechs, radions) I went ahead and bought some. Once I got the glue and started using it I was glad I bought it. This coral glue is really easy to work with. Simply dry off the part of the frag the coral glue will go on, apply a good amount of the glue and then place it on the rock and hold for about 10 seconds. That's it. As you can see in the video you can also use it underwater, just be sure to keep pressure on the bottle so tank water doesn't enter the bottle.

This stuff will likely be my first choice for attaching coral frags quickly. I don't really care for the coral putty and regular super glue is too runny and messy to work with. Anyone that has used a gel super glue before for attaching frags likely won't be very impressed with it, but I like the bottle tip which makes dispensing it really clean and easy. Even after using it, the purchase price still seems a little steep at $50 for the 295 ml bottle. I should have gotten the smaller bottle though. Overall, I would recommend this coral glue to a friend and I give it 4.5 stars
