Frickin frag....

I recently purchased a large colt coral and it came attatched to the smallest little peice of rock I have ever seen. I'm having a hard time placing it because everytime I toss a little current its way, it blows away. Any ideas how I can place it.

TIA

Calvin

You could try garf's underwater reef glue

http://www.garf.org/bestglue.html

they glue stuff to everything and apparently it works pretty dang good. I am going to get some eventually I think. you just put on both pieces, hold together with slight twisting motion until you feel it start to set up (20 sec or so) then let it go.

Steve, does that mean that one could even use "Crazy Glue"? My wife was gluing something yesterday using it and I happened to pick it up and read the ingredients and it does contain that chemical.

Would there be nothing else, chemical wise, in the glue that would be bad for the system? Or are all glues that contain that chemical made the same and will have no effect?

Yes, but the gel works better for underwater aplications.

They are pretty much all the same, once the patent expires (the patant holder gets 7 years free reign) anyone can make it

Ahh ok, got ya. I may run by Wal-mart this morning before I go to work and see if I can find the gel based glue. I want to glue the new LR I got in a few weeks ago to the old LR already in the system...

I get the Duro Brand from walmart all the time, it is just as good as any others I've used and less expensive. One thing I discovered this past week, is to make a really good bond...you can make a sandwich with superglue gel, then the epoxy then another layer of super glue gel. This is not impossible to break, but gives a much stronger sturdier bond than either one alone. Just make sure you switch off your skimmer whenyou use it, both will make your skimmer go nuts

I haven't tried the "glue sandwich"...sounds like a good idea though. One thing I have noticed using gel type super glue is that once you get it wet, you have to move fast. It skims over the moment water hits it. I prefer the epoxy for anchoring LR in place. JMHO. I have found that the Ross brand of gel works well too. I usually get it at the Family Dollar store although I think Office Depot carries it as well.
