Areos- I agree that GE 1 is safe, but I think you'll run into issues with it sticking to PVC (or ABS). Superglue gel is probably a better fit for your application.

Should be able to get it at a chemist/pharmacy (not sure if you use the Brit or US term up there)... it is just rubbing alcohol.

You may want to hold off and let the tank cycle before getting fish... there is no way that it is cycled and ready for fish after only 2 days..

it varies depending on whats in the tank, filtration, etc... basically its the period in which the tank builds up benificial bacteria to fight off ammonia, etc... at least a week, usually closer to 2 in my experience...
