    Doesn’t hold well

    By on

    I cleaned my rocks and made sure they were dry . I used the product according to the directions to cement two rocks together and let it sit for a week and came apart ... I would not recommend this product..

    Okay, but misleading

    By on

    The rhetoric behind the sales leads one to believe that this can be used in water. One has to dig a bit to find that this should NOT BE USED IN WATER! Rather, one should give the rocks ample time to dry BEFORE using this product. I was lucky that I was setting up a new system when I bought this, but now I have 3/4 of a tube and I don't think I'll ever use the rest because it has to be dry when you bond.

    Works Great

    These epoxy sticks are great, especially when used together with super glue GEL and trying to attach pieces underwater. Sometimes the SG isn’t necessary with low water flow and if the pieces naturally fit together, but I’ve found that usually the epoxy or SG doesn’t hold on its own. The best way to fix a frag to a submerged piece of rock is to: 1. Mix a “ball” of epoxy. 2. Press the bottom of the epoxy ball onto the submerged rock to make a temporary “form” on the epoxy to fit onto the rock. Don’t try to attach the epoxy to the rock yet. 3. Put a dab of SG on the bottom of the frag and attach the epoxy to the frag. 4.

Press the frag/epoxy “assembly” onto the rock and hold it firmly in place for about 30 seconds. Boom. This NEVER fails. IMHO trying to use just the superglue on its own is usually a frustrating waste of time, despite what the glue sellers say, unless you can do it out of the water, like just attaching a frag to a frag mount, small rock, snail shell, dead frag piece, etc. … more

    Not completely as advertised

    By on

    I have never used this product before but I had some rock bonding and fragging to get done. The product seems to be good at bonding rocks together if the rock is completely clean. Next I had four pieces of coral that I wanted to attach to ceramic frags. No matter what I tried, I could not get the bond that was advertised on the package. Frustrating.

    epoxy stick is useful

    By on

    Product works fine I use it all the time. It dries white so keep that in mind when using. Takes a while before it turns dark from algae.

    I was disappointed to some extent with this product. I don't think it did as good a job of holding things in place as I was expecting.

    READ THE INSTRUCTIONS

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Had I read the use of this, I would have not purchased it. I was only looking to stick "Beta Leaves" on a glass Aquarium. This is awesome if you have a big tank & are building stuff, but its NOT for a 2.5 gallon, glass to suction cup application. Kermit, my frog, just wanted a better place to hang
