Hi,

Is glue from a glue-gun (one of those cheap glue-guns) safe for inside use in the tank ?
Just to make it more clear: I'll be using it to glue 2 stuff, and only after it dries I'll put it into the tank.

I wouldn't risk it. Just use aquarium safe silicone or Epoxy putty. I know it's a little more expensive, but better safe than sorry.

If you are referring to those hot glue guns for arts and crafts, then the answer is yes. It is safe. I made a cave from lava rock and it has been on my 10 gal for over a month. No problems.
