You can use gel type super glue...just don't get any on the poylps. You'll have to be quick though as it sets very quickly in water. Another alternative is some two part epoxy. You can order some aquarium safe epoxy from most any retailer.

The gel type works best(any brand) as it is not as runny. There is some heat produced as it sets so get it into the water asap to help reduce the heat.

Just about anywhere! The supermarket has them, department stores. Even Lowes will have them near the tapes and adhesives. In the supermarket, look near office supplies. Usually near the tape and staplers and such. Just look for a SuperGlue Gel Pen, or other similar gel type pen.

Only buy the types that contain cyanoacrylate. It will be safe for coral tissue and be sure it is only the gel, not just regular superglue.

I put glue on my rock and let it start to setup, then I took the frag, dried off the bottom and stuck it on. I waited a minute or so while the glue set and then put it into the tank. They seem to be doing ok. I've had them in the tank since January 6 and my one frogspawn has gone from 2 branches to 3 (one of the existing branches split).
