Hello guys

I have just set up a fresh water tank and have been letting the water settle for a few days and I have also glued some pipe cracks together with loctite super glue which is safe for saltwater and fresh water, I know because I have used it for coral in my marine tank but I dropped a bit into my freshwater tank and now bits are floating all around my tank and sump.

Is this going to be a problem or is this dangerous at all? I was planning on putting some fish in soon.

Why not use new pipe? I wouldn't trust superglue to repair a cracked pipe!
