Coral Glue

I am on the hunt for glue that I am able to use in the water for attaching small rocks with zoa colonies on them to my live rock and to glue some of my LPS frags to live rock as well. Thanks!

Super glue gel works well. You can also use marine putty. I typically use the marine putty the add a dap of superglue to holdfast.

The Ecotech Glue is suppose to work well under water. I never used just going off word of mouth.

Superglue gel you can get a bunch for a $1. Glad something is still cheap.

The only cheap thing in this hobby so any old superglue gel at the dollar store will work just fine? Just want to make sure I can use it to attach to my live rock under water since there is no taking my live rock out at this point.

buy super glue gel, not liquid, the gel is easier to work with and can fill gaps, the liquid just runs and drys alot quicker
