Crazy glue is used by surgeons to close tissue together, so it is safe to use in your tank. I use superglue type gel and lately I've become a big fan of CorAffix by Two Little Fishies. The long nozzle doesn't dry out, and makes it very easy to get it where you want it. It has a rather slow curing time (several seconds ) so I can glue out of water and re-attach a frag to a plug that it was knocked off.

For gluing rocks together though I would use a 2-part epoxy like Aquastick or the very similar epoxy I saw in the plumbing section of Lowes for half the money.

It starts to set as soon as it is in contact with moisture.

To glue rocks and frags down, I do the following:


rock
----
superglue layer
----
two part epoxy
----
superglue layer
----
rock


The epoxy does most of the work and the superglue (gel variety) fills in the rest of the gaps.
