Some one told me you can use super glue on coral frags and mushrooms to get the to sick to your rock. Is this true? I feel like the super glue wouldn't be good for the corals or my tank. If any one else has heard or done this themselves please let me know

It can be done. It's usually not that effective with mushrooms or softies because they slime so much. I've used superglue on Zoa's and I've also used it to glue a toothpick on my rock to use to attach my softies. It's best to use the gel type so it doesn't run all over the place.

super glue GEL. not the regular stuff. the regular stuff won't work at all. as soon as you put the regular stuff in the water it will float on top.

never tried crazy glue but I do know your looking mainly for the compound "Cyanoacrylate" which is reef safe.
