Broken Rock

If anybody has ever had a broken rock that they wanted to put back together how did you do it? I'm thinking about super glue but I'd rather use silicone. Is there something else better than these?

Look for some underwater epoxy glue. I *think* it's fairly common at department or hardware stores. Also, you can use super glue, but try using the super glue GEL and not just regular super glue.

Super glue WILL glue rock to rock. I second Devilishturtle's suggestion to use the gel formula - it sets so much easier. For best results, hold the pieces together with a tourniquet clamp made out of a strip of cloth. As far as it being aquarium safe, I believe superglue is a polyacrylate - in other words, acrylic. It shouldn't be toxic once it fully cures.

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.
