What adhesive would you recommend that is safe to glue the rock a coral frag is on to a larger rock to hold still. I can't keep it from getting knocked over.

I've used super glue to hold down a piece of macro algae. just let it set firmly and it should be OK. other people use products such as aqua kneed it.

A friend told me that super glue is not safe in an aquarium that is going to have living fish in it. I'm not sure though.

Super glue was created for use in the battlefield to mend wounds. It is 100% aquarium safe and living creature safe. It is also the perfect glue for mounting frags as it isn't permanent on rock. The frag can be moved later if needed.

I thought iw oudl add that it is best to use gel types of super glue, the really liquidy stuff is quite difficult to use.
