It's an aliaphatic(sp?) resin, and I wouldn't trust it to be reef safe.

I wouldn't use it. Doesn't seem safe and it's the expanding foam type, isn't it?
Super glue gel is tried and true.

if it's cynoacralate(sp), then it should be OK.
Personally, I buy the 3 pack of SG gel from the dollar store.

Ya asked a question, you got 5 responses saying NO! Then you reply saying why and what do you think? WE THINK NO!

You were not harassed or disrespected, it just sounded like you were not listening, that happens a lot on here.

Let me rephrase that.... Your comment was one of the least helpful presented. Just move on.

Gorilla glue super glue gel is Cyanoacrylate just like all the rest. There is nothing wrong with using it. It's actually great stuff.

The dollar store stuff doesn't hold any of my SPS up. I hate that stuff. The Gorilla Glue brand super glue is the best stuff I've found next to ZAP-GEL.

I scored a 12 pack of super glue gel at Lowes for $4.00 - I'm set for years. OK... a few months anyhow.

Rockin, what started out seemingly sour came out with answer from someone who has used the product. Now Im happy to have learned that it is reef safe and works quite well apparently

Looks like i'm going to Sears tonight to see if it's on clearance here for that deal
