Gorilla Glue Reef Safe?

Hi

I am modding an aquaclear 50 filter into a refugium and used this glue on it. I haven't put it in yet because curing takes 24 hrs. I have read on other forums that it should be ok to use in reef aquariums as long as it is cured.
Has anybody had any experience good or bad?
Here are the specs. Thanks

The best glue is Ecotech Coral Glue (CG) but its so darn expensive. I haven't used Gorilla Glue but a lot of the other glue like Krazy Glue and Loctite's Glue usually only lasts a few months in the tank. CG is the best by far. Some LFS's carry sample's that you can try. There is a certain ingredient that you have to look for in the glue but I don't remember what it is.

Thanks. The ingredient everyone recommends is Cyanoacrylate which this one doesn't have. I was torn 50/50 but not going to take the risk and use different glue.

The Loctite Ultra Gel Control is probably one of the most highly recomended......

I'd use the lock-tite gel it holds great
