Yup like I said personal choice on that one. I've had better luck with the epoxy and although it dries rock hard I feel it's easier to place in hard areas because if you roll it into a ball you just press and hold for a few seconds and thats it. It heats up as you roll it. It also has a killer odor but I wouldn't change back to gel even if it was free. I've used the gel and my turbos just knock it over anyway. Since using the epoxy that haven't moved.

Good luck either way you go.

Haha, either will work, I have some corals with epoxy, but most with gel glue (no issues with snails knocking over either). I just don't like the epoxy look after you put it in because it looks really fake (have to wait for coraline to cover it). Super glue gel looks cleaner.

I prefer gel glue because epoxy can be kinda tough for me. The ones I had down with epoxy fell off a couple times before I glued them down. Plus I don't like the look of the epoxy.
