hello, can anyone suggest some safe cigarette filter brands i can use to superglue. I had a look at swan filters but they have so many different types. are they all safe expect anything that says "menthol"
When Filipe Oliveira came to @Aquarium Gardens last year I gave him a menthol filter and he used it but I wouldn`t advise it if you have fish in the tank now. Or as @Krzysztof 82 (Kris) has advised above, filter floss and I have also seen ordinary white paper kitchen towel used.
I use Swan filter tips also, the slim ones. Problem is they don't react with super glue the way that actual cigarrette filters do, and consequently don't work so well.
However, I've done a bit of experimenting and UHU liquid super glue works well with Swan filters.
Be careful tho' it's nasty stuff I accidentally spilt some on my jeans... an exothermic reaction occurred and if I hadn't pealed my jeans away I'd have been burned.
The reaction is a bit delayed tho'. Don't get caught out by looking closely to see if it's smoking you'll gas yourself
And yes it's safe, once the glue has gone off the result is as hard as concrete and pretty much inert.
