loctite glue on hood?

if i were to use some loctite automotive superglue to attach an LED strip to the inside of a tank hood, would it harm my betta? it won't ever come into contact with the water, and he's not a jumper so i doubt he'd ever touch it, but i'm still hesitant. should i use it or not?

I would ask them directly since they are kind enough to provide
lots of contact info. Except they are probably closed today, worth a try!

The glue itself, once dry, will not harm the fish.

The problem is that superglue, a cyanoacrylate adhesive, is slightly hygroscopic. It will absorb moisture and eventually break down.

If you need more strength than tank sealant (RTV) can provide, I'd suggest going with a good two-part epoxy. In fact, I'd use that before anything.
