Falling frags

What's the best way to get them to stick to live rock? I've tried the coraffix and it's not working for me. How about that putty type stuff?

Any special method? I'm still not that comfortable with my coral being out of the water for long. Does the frag have to be dry?

I have used the putty - Its not "sticky" but you can mold it to fit into a crack or a hole. The set back for me is that it is white and it looks out of place for a couple of months.

putty or super glue. Make sure it has cynoacrylate as the main ingredient. Locite is my favorite brand. And, many corals can stay out of water for a few minutes without harm. Just get them to shrink up, a little irritated, before you pull them out. Wash your hands after handling any thing though, and don't rub your eyes/mouth/ears/nose/anything.
