Epoxy Help

I have had some bad luck these past weeks trying to affix one of my soft corals to one of my Live Rocks. Since i received it from LA awhile back the 3pieces of rock it was attached to broke off and remained kind of useless,so i have been propping it up with a bamboo stick. I have used both marine putty and a marine silicon with out luck on either. I just purchased PC-11 Marine Fix from ace and there website says it is both non-toxic and safe for aquarium use but it repeatedly states that is is non toxic after it cures and they used some careful wording never addressing whether or not it is safe during the curing process. So my question is does anyone know if PC-11 is 100% safe for a established Marine Aquarium? I emailed the company but i am still waiting to hear back. Thanks

Use a rubber band for soft corals. Crazy glue Gel, or any gel glue that is CYANOACRYLATE based is fine to use.
