Is this Super Glue Reef Safe?

I know I'm probably being pedantic.. But is this glue safe for reef use?





If you can't see, that's 90% Cyanoacrylate, 9% Methacrylate, 1% Hydroquinone.

2-cyanoacrylate
Cyanoacrylates include methyl 2-cyanoacrylate, ethyl-2-cyanoacrylate (commonly sold under trade names such as "Super Glue" and "Krazy Glue"), n-butyl cyanoacrylate and 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (used in medical, veterinary and first aid applications).

It should be fine, I find that the jells work better

You want the glue you use in your tank to be 100% cyanoacrylate. It has been awhile since I have discussed what the ones that aren't such do...but if I remember correctly it can leach into the water column. I'm personally a fan of the super control gel that Loctite sells.

Might I ask which specific Loctite glue it is?

There's a couple on Amazon..

Fancy bottle that lets you use it underwater with ease. Just simply wipe it off with a paper towel when you are done.
