What do you use for frags beside icegel?

Super Gel, wipe down the base of the coral and the substrate you are about to glue it to, apply the gel and stick it to the substrate wait a minute and back to the tank it goes,

Superglue Gel. Two pack at Home Depot for $1.77. Careful at the 99 cent store with the silver foil looking tubes. I bought some that were dried out.

Is there anything that I can glue the frag directly onto the rock? I've the frag on a disk, but my turbo snails keep on pushing them off. I'm tried of putting them back almost every morning.

A little gel, regardless of kind, dip it in the water to let it get tacky and gum up a bit, then corals tend to stay on a bit nicer but you still need to hold them.

I like using Super Glue Gel from Ace Hardware. They don't give you much though, so it gets a bit costly. Also they tend to clog up often. But I love the results. I can stand acro frags 2" long straight up with the super glue gel within a few seconds of setting it on the frag disk.

I like it better than ICGEL, but it runs out faster, and gets clogged since it dries so fast.

my icglue just burst on me (the tube) and got all over my clothes and hand! thank goodness I was wearing a junk t-shirt.

I have no idea how it happened, I was just screwing the top back on (a bit hard to do now that it's getting gluey). I guess it ripped.

I use zap gel. It's the only thing I've used so I can't compare to anything else but I guess it's working ok.

Glue the disk to the rock.

IC GEL just takes a little time to set up - like counting to 30. I have frags much larger than 2 inches that have been in place for over a year.
