Mushrooms are hard to attach with glue, but super glue gel is best. What i do is put some rubble rock in a small tupperware and put the frag on top of the rock, I then use bridle vail to cover the openning so that fish and crabs don't get in to mess with the frag and the frag don't float away. In a week or so the roo will attach to the rubble and you can put that anywhere you want.

I found out through experience that epoxy can be a bit messy.. and honestly.. it never really held my corals to place.. Don't know why.. maybe the stuff i got was just garbage. However. i recently tried the super glue gel and it works fantastic. Put on a nice glob of it(not a little drop) and just smoosh it on to the location of your choice. Hold it there for a few seconds and once you let go, that frag aint going no where. Excellent stuff right there.

Can I use Aquastix or super glue gel to attach a frag of LR to a larger rock? LFS said I would need superglue and would have to remove the LR from the tank first to dry the spot before I apply glue. I'm looking for something that will allow me to work entirely underwater.

Either would work okay. Most people use super glue gel.
