What should I use to mount my frags to my LR

Hello RC, I am curious as to what product you guys use to mount your frags and corals to the LR in your reef tanks. In the past I have used the puddy because it can be applied underwater without me moving my LR but it either took too long to fasten/dry and I had my hand holding the frag in place for 15 minutes or it just never cured. I am looking for a product that dries underwater and fastens the frag fast and efficiently to my LR.

Any Suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated

Make a ball of putty, then put a blop of gel Ca on top, stick to bottom of plug, put another blop of gel Ca on the putty then squish into rock.

Plug/Cyanoacrylate/Water Putty/Cyanoacrylate/Rock

I was looking for idea's to put my frag plugs on rocks, and this is absolutely the best idea after trying so many different ways. Just putty, just Cyanoacrylate, mounts on small pieces of rock, etc.

I hate waiting for putty to get stiff, and Cryanoacrylate doesn't give me a foundation and flex to tilt the plug.

Many thanks for this idea.

I'm starting a new tank after collecting 19 SPS Frags over a few months, and this may make things go much better!!
