Is Non Toxic PVA glue allriught to use? i know it says non tocic but is that for humans? I making my own ornament and glue would be the quickest and easier option.

I believe PVA is water soluable, the best thing to use for 'gluing' things in an aquarium is silicone, make sure it's safe for aquariums.

Hmm it probably is, is it expensive at all? I'm sort of on a tight budget

I dont think its too expensive, just make sure you dont get anti fungal silicone stuff. Thats bad for the axies apparently and or the water chemistry i believe. Mel

Aye, only aquarium rated silicone or Gorilla Glue are safe for submerged use in aquaria.

You should find Ados F2 in Bunnings or any real hardware store, it's a non-leaching, food-safe plumbers glue that is used a lot for spouting joins when the water will be going to a tank for house use.

Let it cure for 72 hours to outgas all solvents and it then passes food safety standards for submerged use in human consumption water systems, so should be safe for the critters in an aquarium as well.
