Building Aquarium Decor Questions

I have several pounds of base rock and several pieces of old skeleton coral I bought in the 80's. Can anyone recommend a good "glue / epoxy" that is REEF safe? I would like to build up one piece to fit into my new 30G reef build and I would rather start with a solid formation instead of pieces that could shift or fall. I have seen an epoxy from Instant Ocean and wondered if anyone had other ideas.

The one I use is by two little fish and I believe it is called coralfix. It has worked well so far

There are several glues, epoxies, and gels that will work. I can never remember the ingredient you are looking for. Someone will chime in with it eventually.

Thanks Sniperhank. Yes I remember hearing something about the epoxy you use to make sure it does not include one chemical that could leach into tank. Does anyone know the name?

Cyanoacrylate. It needs to be 100%.
