Starbond EM-2000 Thick CA Glue is known as the “gap filler’. This thick CA adhesive has honey-like viscosity, making it the go-to glue for filling large voids and gaps, and heavy-duty bonding. With its strong bonding capabilities, EM-2000 stays in place, even when applied at an angle. This glue is specially formulated to have a longer curing time, allowing as much as two minutes for positioning and the most precise bonding.
Viscosity: 2000 cPs (meaning the thickness of the liquid is similar to that of honey). Filling capabilities of up to 0.01-0.02″ in size. Bonding time: > 60 seconds.
Drying time without an accelerator: 40-50 seconds. Drying time with an accelerator: 5-10 seconds. NOTE ( Accelerators are great or hardscapes prior to filling aquariums only!) They should not be used on live corals or plants!

Looking for the best glue for your aquarium needs? Look no further than Starbond, aquaLife, UP Aqua, and Polyp Lab or Seachem glues.
Cyanoacrylate-based glue, often referred to as “Super Glue” or “Crazy Glue,” is the ideal choice. Opt for the gel form for easier underwater application. These glues are reef safe, cure underwater, and adhere exceptionally well to rocks and frags.
With various superglues available, the critical difference lies in the thickness of the gel, country of origin, manufacturing process, and shelf life. Thicker gels are preferred for reef tanks and aquascaping hard scapes, providing better control and adherence.
Gluing frags outside the aquarium is straightforward. Apply a dime-size dab of glue to your coral plug or rubble rock, dry off the frag, and hold it in place until it sticks on its own.
For underwater gluing, it’s a bit trickier. Eject a small ball of glue underwater onto your fingertips, then gently roll it onto the rock surface. Press the coral into the glue and hold until it adheres. Avoid breaking the skin of the glue with your hands; let the coral frag pierce the glue’s surface.
If you’re having trouble with frags sticking, ensure you’re holding them long enough or penetrating the glue’s surface adequately.
Concerned about cost or shelf life? Opt for bulk containers like the Starboard EM-2000 Thick in larger sizes or aquaLife Aquascaping glue for the best value, shelf life, and quality. Metal containers are a little easier to use for underwater use to prevent premature hardening, such as the UP Aqua, Polyp Labs or Seachem products,
Single-use options like the 1 oz Starbond or UP Aqua tube are convenient, especially for smaller projects.
Choose from super glue gel, extra thick glue, or cyanoacrylate options for all your aquascaping and coral gluing needs. Trust Starbond, aquaLife, UP Aqua, Polyp Lab, or Seachem for reliable, reef-safe adhesion.Read More
