First I want to say that I have enjoyed reading your column in FAMA as well as your booklets...currently I'm reading your Marine Algae Control Secrets booklet. I have found it very informative and helpful. I have a question, specifically regarding the Two Little Fishies AquaStik epoxy putty. I have read where other aquarists use it to epoxy live rock, corals, etc. onto the side of glass aquariums. My question is how easy (if at all possible) is it to remove it from the glass at a later time? What I don't want to do is have a permanent fixture on the side of my aquarium! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your letters and I have been using that same brand epoxy putty for many years on my acrylic tank sides where I attached different corals. When I moved to larger tanks, the putty simply pealed off with a plastic-edged scraper. In fact, an old credit card was the perfect tool for removing the old putty. Since it worked well on my acrylic tanks, it should even work better on glass tanks.

Hope this helps,
