I've used it but not sure if it's safe. I've never used it in s/w, only fresh.

i mostly only use it to hold parts together, like a suction cup to a pipe. things like that.

Same as me, I've had it in a f/w tank for more than a couple months so it's probably safe.

Don't quote me, it's in my turtle tank which is always nasty, I gave up testing anything on it years ago. I change half the water every 1-2 weeks. Should be fine though. Note:Turtles are slobs.

Never fed her hard boiled eggs, shes just an old slider. I got her at Noahs Ark before they went out of business. She's 16 years old this year. She's invincible.

16 is far from old....RESes often live in excess of 50 years.
