    I was recently given a betta that wasn't taken care of very well his tank was quite polluted and he has no decorations or hiding spots. I figured I would make him decorations and a cave with some of my craft stuff I've had lying around ( I didn't know I was receiving a second tank and fish, so decorating it wasn't in my budget ) just wondering what kind of adhesive would be best to use : super glue? Hot glue? Or is there something tank specific I should use?

    Aquarium safe silicone and super glue are both good, the glue will break down though. Make sure your decorations are aquarium safe!

    Specific brands? I've asked this a few times and received a quite 'blank' answer.

    I used locktite brand super glue, and GE silicone 1 is aquarium safe. Make sure they don't have any anti mold stuff in them, just pure silicone or ethyl cyanoacrylates(super glue)

    Crazy glue and gorilla glue gel are also safe.
