What is the best glue to use? Can u use it while the rock and coral are still in the water or do you have to take it all out?

I just use gel superglue. I prefer to use it out of water, sometimes it bubbles if I put it back in the water before it sets good enough

Super gel is great for small things like a piece of digi breaks. If you will be doing a lot of fragging i prefer the glue from boston farms. It is super thick and lasts forever with a very fast dry time.


take the coral out and apply glue. Dunk into water and wait 10 sec. stick it where you want it and hold for 5 sec. Enjoy

Dollar store on Austin Bluffs has 3 packs of Super glue GEL for .99. Make sure you get the GEL and not the liquid.

Ditto to the gel super glue from dollar tree. Better to use out of water, but I've used straight in the tank when needed. Only works once per bottle though, once you dunk the bottle of glue use it then or it's gone.

Cyanoacrylate from hobby town. Same thing as safe lite stuff and in larger quantities is waaaaaay cheaper. Plus they have different thicknesses

The two part epoxy or sticks is what more people use for holding rocks together, you can use it as a base for a frag when you add it to a rock, but in my experience I still need the glue to make it work.
