Glue/Putty OK for Coral?

I have a "Y" branching hammer which I can't get to stay wedged in it's spot...keeps shifting or toppling over. Unfortunately due to my aquascaping and tank shape, I don't have any other area to put it.

Would the rock glue or putty hurt the coral, if I attached it to the rock by the end of the branch?

You should be fine unless you plan to attach it upside down by its polyps

I have often times used super glue gel to frag corals, it works well. The most inportant thing to do is make sure both the rock and coral skeleton are pretty dry so the glue will take. They can survive 5-10 minutes out of the water just fine. Good luck.
