They sell smaller ones too, but I've found that the larger bottle is easier to work with

So you don't have to drain the tank or remove bits and pieces?

You can just apply whilst underwater?

What I usually do is pull the frag out of the tank and apply the glue to the bottom, let it set for about 5 seconds and then place it on your scape where you want it. Hold it in place for about 30 seconds and gently twist it back and forth a couple times so the glue can get into the rock and you should be good to go

Depending on how large the frag is, that 2 part putty works good too-

+1, I actually use a combo of both when I attach my frags. A little ball of the 2 part with a little glue on both sides, the glue will hold the plug to the epoxy while it fully cures and also keep it in place on the rock.

I have used Epoxy to hold my rock scape in place, it set perfectly strong but didn't actually bind to the rock itself..

I'm not too sure on what I did wrong.

It's doable. I use it to close off vermetid snails on the common.

Can I find this stuff at my local home depot? Or is this an online exclusive?
