Underwater Glue

Well my dumb snails keep knocking my corals off the rocks (they are inside shells) and turning them over.

I used super glue for to glue the frags to the rocks. But as for the oystershells to the rocks I think I would need a big blob of super glue and didnt want to try it because #1 It might harm the fish using that much and #2 it might wash away easier.

Now what should I use to glue some of these down??

I dont think wal-mart will have it they may but unlikely. Do you have a LFS near by? because it seems as if they all carry it, or something similar.

I called and asked. They said they have something like that but I never heard of it before. It was $18!!!

Was hoping there was something else out there that I could get at Walmart or something like that.

I ordered the epoxy from Big Al's. I think I only paid $8.00 or so for it. I believe it is very similar to CA based superglues. It requires moisture to "kick" just like superglue.

It seems to work well, but wear gloves when working with it. Prolonged use among hobbiests of CA glues are being linked to some fairly severe allergies to the stuff.
