Making Decorations #1
Hi All,

I would like to make some aquarium decorations such as caves & pramids etc using slate.

I want to build some small decorations and some large ones but i'm not sure what i can use to glue the slate together?

I have milliput which i will use for the large decorations but i need something like superglue for the smaller pieces.

Any Ideas welcomed :)
Best Regards

Rob

I think superglue is fine, but wait to see what others say.

You can buy aquarium silicone as well. Not sure if you can use normal silicone or not...

Better stick with aquarium silicon

I don't know if superglue is safe but if you want to disassemble the decoration, aquarium silicone would make it much easier.

Re: Making Decorations #4
Superglue is OK as long as it's set properly and dry before putting in tank, silicone works well and again needs to cure before going in the water, milliput can be used in water if necessary.
