Coral Propagation is  a very interesting hobby.  We have been hearing about it for years as consumers write in to tell us how they use our super glue products.  ZAP super glue gel seems to be a favored product among aquarium and reef forum contributors and our readers. 

Along with ZAP super glue gel these hobbyists also recommend Zap-A-Gap super glue.  It is also a thick gel that is specially designed for gap filling.  It fills in the coral irregularities and will help attach it to reef rocks or commercial frag tools.  It is best to attach the coral frag to a dry plug or rock outside of the aquarium and then submerge it into the water.  Both the ZAP super glue gel and Zap-A-Gap products are not harmful to the other aquarium inhabitants and by the time the coral attaches itself and the growth process takes off the super glue will disolve and disappear altogether as it ultimately breaks down in water. 

Coral propagation is a very fulfilling hobby as coral reproduces rapidly, transfers easily and can be shared and traded with other hobbyists.  There are so many different varieties of coral out there.  What a cool, fascinating hobby!

If you use super glue products to propagate coral send us your tips and tricks!  We want to hear from you!!
