Mr. Sticky's Underwater glue is NOT good for reef rocks

I tried glueing a piece of tonga to another rock with Mr. Sticky's today.

Toothpaste would have worked better, would have smelled a heck of a lot better too. the Mr. Sticky's was completely, absolutely worthless for glueing these rocks together and did not stick one iota. It literally almost fell off. It stinks like epoxy too. It has an ingredient known by the state of CA to cause cancer.

Thus endeth my unpleasant experience with Mr. Sticky's underwater glue.

The flattering email sent to Bob Fenner by the sticky people therefore seems a bit grand (text below from wetwebmedia) although they probably meant it for plastics or whatever.

Following text is from this link: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/corlpropfaqs.htm

Mr. Sticky's® Underwater Glue
Dear Robert,
I noticed your website through a search at yahoo and would like to let
you know about a new epoxy which is stunning most experts. Mr. Sticky's®
Underwater glue has three major breakthroughs:
1. It is very sticky underwater (salt or fresh)
2. It has very strong bonds to Plastic as well as glass, metal, ceramic
3. It is not rigid, so resists bond failure due to
shrinkage/expansion/vibration etc.
Duke University has tested it in conjunction with Coral and found that
it caused no tissue degradation. It is also currently being tested by
scientists at the Florida Keys Sanctuary, Mole, Cheju Island in Korea
and Eilat in Israel. It has also passed the bioassay for fish safety.
You may want to check our website at http://www.underwaterglue.com, we
would also be pleased to send you a sample for testing.
Most of our customers love the glue because there are so few failures
after initial bonding. You can fix very small parts, wet or dry.
Kind Regards,
Art Quinn, MSI
<Okay... will post your note to the WWM site... and you may kindly send along a sample for our anecdotal testing (we have a 4k gallon pilot culture/experimental facility here) to:
10251 Thanksgiving Lane
San Diego, CA 92126
Thank you, Bob Fenner>
