Gluing Live Rock Underwater

Looking for a product recommendation:

Need to glue together a fallen piece of live rock that is already underwater and part of my aquascaping structure.
I tried epoxy and it does not get the job done because the rock is already submerged.
Any recommendations of what I can use to glue my rock that is already underwater?

Thanks!

+1 superglue is the best! It's a bit of a pain underwater, but it works well. Figuring out how to "pop" the bubble without gluing your hand to the rock is the only hard part.

Superglue and epoxy. Knead a substantial piece of epoxy , then put superglue along one side and mold it into place between the rock and the base to act as a bridge.
