    Can crazy glue safely be used to build decor?

    If it's cyanoacrylate then it's safe to use

    Any plain super glue will work (cyanoacrylate). No need to buy something specific to aquariums - usually they increase the price then.

    I'm not sure about Krazy glue though (ethyl cyanoacrylate). When I googled it, I didn't see anything that said not to use it...

    EDIT: Ninja'ed
    Coradee - ethyl cyanoacrylate okay?

    I think that's just it's full name, I believe salty keepers use a gel version for frags so it must be safe

    I used a gel version of cyanoacrylate to glue plants to decor. The gel seems to work better as it's not runny. Use it sparingly because it dries white, not clear.
