    Hi guys

    Is there any other way to glue corals down except for the expensive putty in the LFS?

    Yup, Pratleys putty for all the hard (stony) corals, and super glue gel for the softies (although the softies normally attach within a few days if just wedged between rocks).

    super glue gel works excellent for sps, pratleys also works well on sps and lps. rather just let softies attach on there on, u can use a little super glue gel to help them on the way or rubber bands,fishing line or cable ties to keep it stable.
