Securing/glue for corals

Looking for some feedback on this. I'm aware that everything needs to not have mildew resistance stuff in it... I have some epoxy that kinda worked...but I have a colt that is floating around the bottom of my tank. He has almost no base. When I tried to epoxy him onto the base it just didn't hold.

Basically, I'm looking for some sort of gel glue that I can apply in the water of my DT. I would like to put it on one of the larger pieces of LR I have, but can't remove it due to the entire aquascape collapsing.

I was thinking about using that...but wasn't sure if it would kill off my system if used in the DT and not allowed to "cure".

Nope it is safe. I try to do it out of the tank and let it dry for a min before I put it back in. Glueing it in the tank is much harder.

I didn’t tell him to... believe it or not I can read. I was simply giving him advice on something completely new to him. It can be done out of the water or at the very bottom of the display tank.

Why the bottom of the DT and not the middle or top? I've had these corals for awhile and know where they are doing well...The colt is ok at the bottom, but did better higher up before I broke his crappy paperthin base and he gets blown by the circulation in the tank.

I was simply giving an example of the hardest area to do it lol. It can be done in water or out, anywhere.

Lol. No reason to post twice over the same thing. You said try and take it out. All I am saying is he said he can't.

I personally would put it up higher closer to the light if it would do better. Maybe that wag you could also do it out of the water. It would probably be better that way anyways.
