I am new to this forum and have tried to post this twice now, once last night and just about an hour ago, and each time I hit post thread it said I had to log in and erased everything I typed and as you can see it is quite a bit, but anyway my roommate uses this forum and I had her see if there was anyone who knew of a good epoxy to use for coral frags (super glue just doesn’t cut it for me most of the time). While she was doing that I was looking for some SeaClone 100 mods and came across a link that came to this forum and while reading the posts iI saw a 10 gallon aquarium contest and it just so happens I just started a 10 gallon nano reef on July 1st. So I clicked on the link hoping I could still enter. so hear is my entry (I am coping and pasting this thread before I click post this time to make sure I don’t have to type it for a third time)
