    Can you use hot glue gun or gorilla glue to glue a plant to drift wood? 15478527227448525501092481951381.

    From what I've been told only cyanoacrylate is safe in aquariums.

    A hot glue gun will probably burn the plant and that's not good. From what I read, most people say that Gorilla Glue is not safe. Super glue with cyanoacrylate is safe.

    Superglue (cyanoacrylate) is known to be effective, safe, fast and cheap. Why risk using this other stuff?

    You can use the gel type gorilla glue, not the original

    Gorilla glue is definitely safe, but I would not use this type, the clear gel is better.
