Fragging glue?

So I was looking up fragging glue, and I noticed that Cor Affix, by TwoLittleFishes has Ethyl Cyanoacrylate in it. I was looking through my work room, and found an Elmer's "Super Glue" that uses the same chemical, but I don't want to just give it a shot and risk killing my entire system...

Is this reef safe to use with out risking killing off my corals/fish/ect??

well do you think it would be worth an extra 30 some $ to buy some glue I already have, but I know is reef safe? I mean i don't want to risk my entire system, but why waste funds if i already have a usable supply...

you will spend alot more replacing your fish if things go bad...........Depending on the toxicity (if it is) it could leech into your aquarium seals and then you could have to replace the entire tank.......IMO, i wouldnt risk it, but its not my tank.....Good Luck with what ever direction you go!

Thanks Pole, I think buying some CorAffix or something is the way to go, rather spend 30$ than risk losing hundreds right?

i use it. gel superglue works the best. you want cyanoacrylate, im not sure if it has the ethynol or not in it. i just got the multi pack of no name brand glue that says cyanoacrylate on it and it works fine.
i also have some of this that works good too

Yea I knew that cyanoacrylate was the stuff I wanted, but I wasn't sure if this bottle of Elmer's "super glue" that has cyanoacrylate in it would work, or just kill everything...

So if it has cyanoacrylate it's good to use in a reef and wont kill anything?

Buy super glue gel. If it's not gel it runs. Cyanoacrylate won't kill anything. I've glued a lot of things with generic super glue gel. No problems.
