Gluing frags to rock rubble...

I got some Krazy Glue and was going to glue a couple of my frags to some rock. I've read a bunch of posts about doing this underwater, but do people do this in their display tank? Or in a separate bucket? I'm concerned about my skimmer going bonkers and going micro bubble crazy due to the glue... Thanks.

I use a bowl full of tank water. I glue them on the rock, hold it for a couple of minutes to set then let it finish in the bowl. Once I know they are all on tight I put it in the tank. Never have seen a micro buble because of it...

What are the ingredients of the glue? And is it the gel version? Not sure on the krazy glue, but I know loctite gel works and is perfectly safe. I just take the frag out of the tank put the glue on and right back in to the tank and hold it where you want it for about a minute until it holds.

I read that the right kind of glue is the kind with Cyanoacrylate. Yes, it's a gel...
