For the zoas I put a tiny bit of superglue gel on the rock or disc and then carefully place the foot or bottom of the zoa on the glue. It pretty much adheres instantly. Kind of like getting superglue on your finger.
For other frags like the Poker star I do remove the rock that I'm glueing the frag to from the tank. I use a paper towel to dry the area on the rock that I'm going to glue the frag and I also dry the back side of the frag. I put the superglue gel on the rock and then put the frag onto the glue. After the frag has glue on it I remove it from the rock and spray the accelerator on the rock only and then quickly place the frag back on the glue. I hold it in place for a few seconds and then put it back into the tank. I use this procedure pretty much all the time when glueing frags.
When placing frags into the main reef I will use a 2 part epoxy to attach the frag plug or rubble on the main rock structure.
