Is PVC cement reef/fish safe? I'm assuming so but want to confirm. If so, how long should it set up before adding it to the water lines? I'm adding a PVC tee to my return line.

Thanks, from what I read it appears fine. One can never be too cautious.

I have never had anything die from PVC glue from my uses. I can say 1st hand we just got done plumbing my system about 2 months ago or month 1/2. I have also added a water change device with fish and coral in system and lost nothing used following day.

Yep, cures almost instantly upon contact with water. If you could run a "flush" it would be good. I have run new plumbing in an existing system, using pvc cement with no ill efects. wow i cant tyopoe.:doh:

Most things rated safe for potable water usage will be reef safe as well. Allow the product to fully cure as it's the chemicals released during curing that can cause issues.
