Two Little Fishies AquaStik is a two-party epoxy and among the handy glues I’ve tested. It is great for attaching corals, attaching gorgonians and for gluing rock structures together or holding pieces in place.
Another particularly useful way to apply two-party epoxy that I’ve discovered is to mold it into barriers to prevent corals from growing into each other.

You have about 5 minutes of working time, so take your time getting pieces exactly where you want them. It’s important to note the epoxy is not sticky—it will not ‘glue’ pieces together. Instead, the epoxy is like a clay that hardens: try to work it into crevices so there is more the epoxy can hold on to.

|The “sandwich” method works great to attach frags!|
Roll a small ball of epoxy then apply some coral glue (cyano acrylate) on the top and bottom of the epoxy. Place your “sandwich” on the bottom of the frag then attach the frag to your live rock. The epoxy will mold to the shape of the live rock and the coral glue will help hold everything together.

With its many uses, the AquaStik Epoxy is extremely handy and convenient. It is definitely a great glue to learn to use and have in your aquarium supplies cabinet!
