Yes, it is tough to get stuff to stick to it. I've got some plastic trays that
I want to centrally filter to hatch eggs in, but I'm hooking 10+ together,
though, so using like a bulkhead fitting on each would get to be pretty
expensive. Were I rich, I'd use Rainbow Lifeguard fittings, but at like $5
each that'd be pretty expensive. The trays were only $2 each! If anyone can
tell me if 2 part epoxy is toxic or not I'd like to know, as that stuff is
pretty cheap to try...


If you didn't see it, you missed it.
