Hi i need to secure a 5 inch airstone to the bottom of my 470 litre coldwater tank . If i bury it in the gravel the large orandas just dig it up . I was wondering about using a small amout of Tec7 as it cures chemicly and will cure under water , but my question is will it be safe to use while its curing in the tank . Thanks

Don't quote me on this but when I was reading online, I read that tec 7 cures faster under water because it uses the moisture to cure, it can be used underwater as far as I am aware

I have never used TEC7 but I seem to remember reading somewhere that they have a second 'Aquarium-friendly' product. If memory serves me right this alternative one actually has a fish logo on the canister.
Maybe a phone call to them might clear up the question?

Here's the link to the thread I was looking for:

www.irishfishkeepers.com/forum/33-produc...135871-tech-7#184391

From your comment at the bottom maybe you have your answer already, Robert?

Edit:
It'd JustinK's comment (maybe half way down the thread) which mentions the 'Aqua-Friendly' logo on the fish safe version.

If you stick it down, how will you remove it when it wears out or gets blocked?
Can you just stick it to the bottom with some sucky pad used for pipe work?
If you use good quality ones they won’t keep popping off, like the Chinese ones do.

Hi , i did speak to a guy from tec 7 today , he saidas far as he knows itis fish safe , but wont grantee it . He said they do not make a product that is confirmed as fish safe. But he did say for the small amount i would need and the large water quantity he couldnt see a problem . The airstone i want to use is a good quality non clog unit so should be ok for a long time , and could if needed be removed using a sharp blade . So i think i will try in on saturaday my next water change day . Thanks
