    Hi

    Is there any way to prevent hermits from dislodging frags just placed on the rocks?

    yes stick the frags down. either with superglue or pratley puttey. but unfortunately its also not guaranteed. they will still be bumped over from time to time.....lol

    Any super glue with cyanoacrylate is fine.

    You could also try aquamend found and builders.

    i prefer superglue gel. the normal stuff i stick my fingers together to often.
    pratley puttey the normal one or aquamend. i just found with aquamend my frags come loose easier than with pratley puttey

    The moment the glue hits the water it's starts to harden so that would be the idea, as you mentioned. You need to be quick. I prefer some aquamend combined with glue. I glue to aquamend then attach it to the rock, easier to work with imo. The aquamend does not harden instantly, same as the putty.
