    I used one from Perky Pets, it was an Ecotech product and it was amazing. Conveniently easy to use, no harmful substances that will effect the water quality and fast drying!

    I've always used super glue gel (any brand - the cheapest I can find) Put enough glue on the frag to form a small bubble if you want to use it underwater. Put the coral frag where you want it the bubble of super glue will break open as the coral frag is pushed onto the surface you want it to attach to. Hold the frag in place for 10 - 15 seconds and it should stick. Superglue is harmless.

    I have also used pratleys putty but it takes a lot longer to set.
