    Anyone tried "Liquid Nails?"

    The product Liquid Nails is a calking product that dries as a an adhesive with minimal flex, can be sanded and is generally pretty strong. Anyone have experience using it in reef tanks? Everything in my project is dry, including the rock to be glued. I like the fact that it is thick and way cheaper than epoxy.

    Look up Emaco that is the only reef safe rock adhesive that I know of. Our sponsor Jester6 will be at the swap and has great prices on emaco.

    Thanks. I'll check it out. However, it can't be the ONLY reef safe rock adhesive, as there are many on the market. I usually hear of epoxy or super glue gel. I used to cringe when smelling the fumes and wondering what harm it might be causing to life, but have used both for many years with no troubles. Just don't know about the properties of "Liquid Nails."
