Are all types of super glue gel safe for a saltwater aquarium or do you guys use a special type that is meant for aquarium use? If their is a difference, which one do you guys recommend?

I use regular Krazy Glue super glue gel. No differences.

Everything I have read says that as long as the glue has cyanoacryate in it, it is ok. I have yet to see one that did not though. I bought my last batch at the Dollar Tree

Corals can be out longer than you think. Most will set up a slime coat if out too long to protect themselves. Go to a frag workshop and you will be amazed on how tough most species are.

As for mounting, gel works for most things. Leathers, shrooms and other softies will not work with good consistency. For leathers, I spear them with a tooth pick and then rubber band the toothpick to a rock. They will attach themselves after a week or so. Mushrooms almost have to do themselves. I have never found a sure fire way with them. Put them in some rubble and let them do it themselves

both will work well, the epoxy works better if you have a large piece you are looking to fix to your reef.

Just wanted to add that if you use the toothpick method, make sure the rubberband isn't too tight. I learned the hard way when my corals kept splitting in two. Took me about 3 tries to figure out that was the problem. I was slicing them unknowingly!
