    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.
