BIGGEN,I dont think anyone asking about glueing corals or that owns a reef tank at all for that matter would really believe that liquid nail thing lighten up!! NUFF SAID!!!!!
Why the heck not? Liquid Nails is just another type of adhesvie, right? When I was a newb, the first time I heard that people attach corals to rocks with super glue I was like "Whatever, that is BULLS***!" It is all to easy to walk into a pet store and spend a lot of money on corals without have any clue about how to attach them, and very possible that people could take your information the wrong way.

I am not going to lighten up with this kind of stuff. How do you know someone wouldn't take this to heart? You suggested, in another thread, that someone give an enema to their fish. The person then responded with "what is it and how do I get it".

If you are going to post this kind of stuff, let the people know you are joking with them and are not serious. Better yet, put it in the Lounge.

You don't want to use Liquid Nails for glueing coral and it is not "just another type of adhesive". It is nowhere near fish safe. Get some super glue at Wal-Mart that contains CYANOACRYLATE in it. It will say it on the package. I use the Duro Brand. It is around $2 for two tubes of it. Much cheaper than Liquid Nails as well.

You missed the whole point of my argument, evidently. I do realize you were joking. Some may not. It is not that I don't like joking around, you just need to be careful. Especially on the internet where there are language and cultural barriers. Don't just assume. That was my point.

I am done arguing about this as it is off the topic and I have better things to do.

Heh, I know, I was just trying to get the point across. I got through a crazy ammount of glues and adhesives building model rockets and subwoofer enclosures. I can stick anything to anything
