yes you can use gel superglue. I fragged my zoos for the first time a couple weeks ago.

1 - have a peice of rock to attach them too, make sure it is dry. (pat down with paper towel)
2- wear gloves.
3- remove zoos from tank.
4- use a sharp razor blad to cut the zoos off, try to cut underneath them, scraping the rock. Try to get as many polyps off as you can, or want.
5- pat dry the bottom of the polyps.
6- apply glue to rock, and place the zoos on the rock, i used a toothpick and tweezers, dont apply to much pressure.
7- wait a minute, then place back in tank.
8- they should open within a day. (mine took a couple hours, the actual frag took longer then the original colony).

be sure to post pics.

HTH.
