Is hot glue ok?

I think I have read only the clear kind is safe but I can't find it for sure. I just want to make sure before I create some things for my tank.

I don't see why it wouldn't be as long as it was allowed to dry completely before being put in the tank!

You should just invest in some aquarium glue just to be on the safe side.

I've heard the clear kind is safe, and on closer inspection, it looks like my Walmart fish plants have been glued together XD

I would use hot glue, but if you wanted to be extra sure and extra safe, go with aquarium glue/sealant or whatever. If you're going to be worried about it, don't use the hot glue :)

I would prefer the the sealant but I can't find any in my town (little desert town). Can you get it from petsmart or petco? I will have to go about an hour away but it would be worth it if they carry it because my walmart does not.

edit: I found it at petsmart online.

I've found the sealant hard to work with! It dries really slow, and smells really funky, lol.

"Stick" with the glue". lol Good pun.:) I got aquarium sealant today and it's messy. I had it all over my hands and it took a few hand washings to get it off.

I know superglue is safe for invertebrates to aquascape, but I have never tried hot glue underwater. Superglue dries very quickly, and many people use superglue to aquaculture corals. Wearing gloves is a good idea if you are working with superglue.
