How do you guys mount your SPS and Zoas? I heard of this cement or something, but have no idea what exactly.

Gel superglue works great on both. Just remove the frag thats going to be mounted on your work area ( towels or bowls or whatever), Tap dry your frag and apply glue then place coral , blow a little and place back in the tank.
Also do a search on coral fraggin in hear and there are some videos that may help. GL

Any brand will work. Just make sure it is made of cyanoacrylate. This chemical is inert in saltwater. The gel superglue does work the best as it runs less than the regular stuff.

Yeah, gel superglue does work the best. Try to use that one

Demonsp - So, I apply the glue to the frag, blow on it to start the drying, and then place it in the tank on the LR that its going to glue to. Sorry to be repetitive but I've had some Zap Gel for 2 weeks now and I've been scared to let it "dry" inside the tank for fear of releasing chemicals.
THanks for the help. I'm sticking around on this thread.
