Superglue is completely safe for using even in reef tanks.

If you wanted to be super safe you could buy a coral glue from a shop .

Interesting, I have been messing around with elastic bands and thread. It never occurred to me to use glue.

Do you think Anubias could be glued?

Put remember the superglue has to be well dried before it goes into the tank as it causes oil as it hits water if the top layer isnt dry (lesson learned by me lol)

Other than that i use Coral Glue by ecotech and there is nothing that it cant stick down. :) It can be used underwater as well and used as quick fixes for equipment too :) I used it to fix the overflow comb on one of my tank last week :)
