D-D The Aquarium Solution

AquaScape has been specially developed in association with Milliput for use within Marine Aquariums. AquaScape cures underwater to the color of coralline algae, which makes it far more aesthetic than standard aquarium epoxy.

the Hammer

Works well and bonds nicely. Good pinkish color. Don't use too much if you think you might want to move something in the future! Doesn't really cloud the water even if you manipulate it underwater.

Works. Nice color.

It's easy for me to see why this product has gotten such mixed reviews. I bought it because other reviewers said that it's sticky, it doesn't turn your hands white, and the coral matches coraline algae pretty well. Other reviewers said that it turns slimy and dissolves into a cloud in salt water. In my experience, all of these things are true. I've been a salt water hobbiest for almost ten years now, and I've still never gotten the hang of using under water glues. I'm just bad at it, whether epoxy or cyanoacrylate, and no amount of online tutorials help. The reason I gave this product three and a half stars is because even though it turns slimy and dissolves in water, it's still tackier somehow than other clay epoxys I've used. It sticks frags to live rock better than other products. You just can't work it much under water or it will dissolve to nothing. Also, the color is almost indistinguishable from the coraline in my tank. I use a bobby pin to push little indentations into it to try to make it look more like LR. The instructions say to mix the two clays together for five minutes or until the color is evenly purple, plus one more minute. I've tried both of these methods (the color mixed in less than 90 seconds for a small amount) and found that the longer you knead it, the stickier it gets. I worked with one hand and kept kneading a spare bit in the other for almost fifteen minutes and the spare bit was still workable at the end of that time -- and very sticky. Plus, my fingers aren't purple or white. Finally, my giant barnacles keep trying to eat the dissolved epoxy cloud. So far it hasn't seemed to hurt them.

AquaScape Aquarium Epoxy

I just used this for the first time and it works great. The putty was easy to mix with my fingers and didn't even stick to them like the instructions warned it would. I used the putty to attach 2 frag disks to some live rock, while submerged, and it stuck right to the disks and rock immediately. The pieces were stable as soon as they were pushed into place. So, basically, I was able to stick them in place and walk away. 24 hours later everyone is still happy.

good stuff

One of the best putty-epoxy products out there. Sometimes one of the two parts gets a little hard if you don't close it up really well. I have even received it with one of them being a little hard. When it is like that, it does not work as well. I have tried many and this one is quite good. Important to really mix it well!

works well

Aquascape has given me more consistent results in epoxying the live rock structure than other adhesives I've tried. Don't rush the kneading - do it for at least five minutes - and it's good and sticky. It can be messy so be careful - I found bits on the floor and it can be a bear to get up. The only reason I gave four instead of five stars is that a couple of rocks came loose under the pressure of securing new ones. Just don't press too hard I guess. Definitely get the red -they've matched the coraline color well.

Best. Epoxy. Ever!!

I've tried a lot of different epoxies, but this one is by far the best! It's the only one I use now. You have to mix it a little bit longer than the other brands. But it sticks a lot better to frags and rock. Don't buy any other brand!
