Default Liquid Nails

I am using this to mount some bromeliads into my background. My question is the bonding time for this especially with the back ground and stolon being damp. Am I going to need to prop up some of the bromes with the really short stolons until the roots come out or does the liquid nails bond quickly enough to where I wont be holding there from here to eternity?

Hey, it should be strong enough to hold pretty quick, but I am not sure how fast with how wet/humid your tank is, I would hold it there for 5 minutes, if it isn't good by then I would just pin them up for now or something.


Just my 2 cents, Curt.

I would read the label on the liquid nails, under the warning, and see if it mentions anything nasty before I used it in a tank.

I've never bonded anything damp with LN, but it usually takes 24 hours for it to cure.

That was actually something that the Bromeliad society suggests for mounting bromeliads. I am not sure though about frogs.. .hmmm... should look at that.

Hi Sara, I use LN in all my vivs with no problems at all. Never timed how long it takes to cure because I always provide temp support with a piece of soft brass wire that I bend into an appropriate shape. I pull the wire after a day or two. Works great for both stoloniferous broms and tillies (with no holdfasts) as long as you provide some form of artificial support till it cures. I don't know how long it takes to cure on a really wet surface, so can't comment there.

Awesome George! That is good to hear. Obviously no problems with adverse effects so I will make sure and give it some support. Thanks again everyone

FWIW, I've poked a small dowel into the background and used a loop of thin monofiliment to hang the brom onto the dowel. No need for adhesives, and it's easy to add, change, delete, even with frogs in the tank. Once grown in you can cut it off if you like.

Just a thought...

I would use the fast drying liquid nails. It costs about double as the regular stuff per tube, but really dries faster!
