Sticking corals to rock
I'd like to stick a couple of corals to my rocks and I've tried the Aquastick epoxy putty without success. I just bought "Instant Krazy Glue" Gel form, is this toxic to the fish and if not how dry do the pieces being glued have to be?

I use what ever super glue gel in the tube that I can find. I make sure to dry the 2 pieces that will be glued together. When I dry them I basically get as much water off as I can. Then glue. I hold the frag in place for a couple of minutes, then put it back in the tank.

Take a drill bit and make a hole the width of your coral's base to help it hold with the super glue gel. You don't have to use a power drill, just twist the bit and pull out some rock material to set it in.

I use the Krazy glue inside the tank. Just glob the glue where you want the piece to go and attach the coral in place. In the water though you have to move quite rapidly, but it works.
