Depends on the frag and where I'm gluing it to. I use Duro Brand superglue gel (from walmart) and I use z-spar marine epoxy from home depot.

They type of coral your attatching, to the substrate your attatching it to, etc... For SPS, I'll use glue for a smooth surface, for a really uneven and craggy surface, I'll do substrate>SGG>epoxy>SGG>frag gives a fast bond, and the epoxy will squish into the crags so you get good surface contact with the gel.
