Both Beetle and I have not been able to find weldbond. I've been to Home Depot and Sears Hardware with no luck. Where are people in the North East US getting it from?

Thanks Scott,
Who would have known the only place I didn't check (nor knew existed in town)... and it's only 1/2 a mile away and carries it in stock...
Thanks again.

What do you use it for? You guys are making your own acrylic tanks? Sounds cool...Yeager I would be interested in seeing how it turns out.

Weldbond is not good for bonding acrylic together. It isn't even listed on their website as a material it will bond. Use Weld-on for bonding acrylic.

Not what they're using it for Paul.

They're adding coco fiber, and or peat, to the Weldbond to make backgrounds *in* acrylic tanks.

That's what I figured, but David asked if they were making tanks with it. I just wanted to clarify that weldbond is not a good product if you are trying to bond acrylic together. :)

Thanks guys! So the Weldbond is used to adhere coco/peat to the acrylic? Is that right onto the acrylic or is something used as a primer (silicone)?

One other question...does great stuff need to be sealed with only silicone? I sealed coco to it with Elmer's Pro-Bond. I read that great stuff will break down and release dangerous chemicals when in contact with water unless it is sealed with silicone.
