Using glue underwater?

Is it worth getting the epoxy?...I have been trying to use gel superglue to put the rock together in my girls new tank, and cannot get it to gold anything!??!?

Is there a trick to it?....it seems like it is drying to fast in the water!

TIA!

I use this epoxy and it is great. I've used it to glue rock to rock, rock to wood, wood to wood, live plant to wood....etc.... I haven't tried any other "glue" to compare, but this stuff dries hard as rock.

The superglue is better used outside of the tank. It will cure too quickly under water, sometimes even drying up inside the application tube!

The epoxy does work well, but be sure to have it mixed well, and rubbed to a hot sticky consistency before use.
