Coral glue

ANy recommendations for a glue that actually sticks to corals and rock and not just my fingers. And doesn't dry up as soon as you use it and clog the spout? Tried several coral glues, Crazy glue gel etc and I always end up having to cut the darn tube open after a few uses. Makes me crazy

IC Gel works great and is strong enough to mount huge colonies. I've left tubes open several times and they were fine when I got back to them.

It's a CA glue just like super glue gel.

I just used super glue from lowes or home depot. Never see any problem. No Acro in my tank, though.

Pretty much the same thing but different sale way, my thoughts.

I'm using this one:

It's a very good value comparing to other. It dry up longer than other and you need to get used to it. My full scape is holding on that glue.
