Dope...
Just cleaning a Deltec MCE300 and skimmer cup popped out. It hit the ground and split in half.

Is it possible to glue it back together? If so what glue type would you recommend?

Thanks for any advice.
Pat

I saw superglue in one or two shops that is safe for aquarium. I think I saw it in Fins Fur and Feathers. I think it comes from TMC and is used for sticking rocks together.

No problem. It was definitely superglue and not silicone or reefer's epoxy.

Was told by Seahorse Aquariums that the glue fix wouldn't be good as the bubbles wouldn't move seamlessly up the cup, which they say would be bad. So I'm off to order the replacement. Thanks for all the comments.
