    Will it hurt the plant.
    Would it be harmful for the fish.
    Which kind of supperglue can I use.
    Sorry if I put it in the wrong section.

    I've used it and it works a treat.
    A few others have too.

    I found my supergule only worked on dry wood.

    you only need a tiny bit on the plant, just enough to secure it. Too much and you will suffcate it ;)

    it is only harmful to fish when wet/ not dry.

    I stapled mine in my last tank as well - that seemed to work well too!

    Hi all

    i've even supeglued moss with success. i've also found the super glue over time disappears too.

    You only need a little bit to hold plants in place. "Gel" super glue products work a little bit better with porous surfaces, such as wood. The dry glue will slowly fall apart in water.

    i agree, superglue gel is a very good option.

    i use this to glue stick coral frags to rock and it works very well indeed :)
