Glue Corals Under Water

I have a few random mushrooms and zoanthids floating around my tank. I guess they came detached from the colony somehow. Most are on the sand bed and not attached to anything. I'd like to glue them to some of my rock structure. Is it possible to do so under water?? Super glue on the coral then quick stick it to the rock where I want it??

If you use the watery super glue it will not give time to set it. Water acts as an accelerator. Use a gel type give you more time before it sets up. I know the mushrooms produce a little slime making it hard , sometime's it's better for them to be wedged and attach themselves. Ever use frags and glue directly to them could work better since you have a sand base. Back in my haydays ( I'm old) I used them with success.

Here's a few videos that may help : https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=ho ... ORM=VDVVXX
