Go to home depot or lowes and get some crazy glue Gel. The regular stuff won't work. Any gel type glue made from cyanoacrylate. You can apply it underwater, and just hold the frag in place for 15-20 seconds and it should stick just fine.

Hahaha it's the same one every time, it's pretty funny, the darn thing apparently didn't like where I put it, it was at the bottom corner of my tank, I put it up on a live rock closer to the top. It's a little red legged hermit crab with a zebra like shell he doesn't flip it over he's just moved it back 3 times now since yesterday

I agree with Mr X. My hermits would nock my frags over until I glued them down onto the rocks.
