    I've got a slanted (fake) rock, and a little submarine that I like perching on its slanted surface to make it look like it crash landed. Of course, the thing slides off all the time, especially when my snails crawl all over it. So I'd like to permanently glue the thing on somehow. What's an adhesive I can use that won't leech harmful substances into the water?

    It's in a freshwater 20G high community tank.

    Cyanoacrylate, super glue is safe in aquariums

    If you prefer an aquarium-specific version, search for Seachem Reef Glue or Flourish Glue online. The other alternative is silicone aquarium sealant although it takes longer to dry fully.
