gluing frags or ???


I have two types of glue I've been told are 'safe' for corals - one, the thick, clear stuff that looks like crazy glue, and the other that comes in a stick.

Question 1, at what point do you decide to glue a frag? Question 2, is one type of glue preferable? Question 3 - do people glue 'rock' to rock when the coral is on a rock rather than one of those frag-thingies?

I move frags after a month or two out of the sandbed and slowly move them up in the tank/where I want it to be.
The only type of glue you should use in your tank is 100% cyanoacrylate. Anything else can do not friendly things to your tank.
I glue my frags that come on plugs or rock right onto the rock-scape I have set up once they are acclimated to my lighting. Over time, they get covered by the coral and/or other things like coraline algae and look exactly like your rock does over time.
