Marine epoxy use.

Does anyone use the marine epoxy like you can get at lowes in their tank? It says it cures under water etc. Is this the same stuff they sell for mounting corals?

Well, I haven't used it in an aquarium but it works great on a boat. I've used it to make emergency repairs below the waterline on more than one occasion. It sets up up as advertised. I have no idea if it would be toxic or slowly leach toxins that would kill fish and inverts.

I use PC Plumbing Epoxy Putty from Home Depot. It's NSF rated safe for potable water contact.

I have also used epoxy, but from the LFS works nice for frags, some heavier corals can be tricky.
