There are several brands of coral / rock work epoxy on the market and now there is another option called CoralCrete from Seachem.
Seachem CoralCrete™ is two-part epoxy putty that can be used to secure coral to rock work or fuse rocks together for a more stable aquascape structure. Like most epoxies, CoralCrete has a working time of 5 minutes before it begins to harden to the point where it is not usable. CoralCrete™ is ideal for working with larger colonies of branching coral, many large polyp corals or adhering plating corals (like Montipora caps) to rock work. It is safe for aquarium inhabitants when used as directed.

Seachem CoralCrete™ is two-part epoxy putty that can be used to secure coral to rockwork or to fuse together rockwork for more stable foundations in reef aquaria. It has a working time of 5 minutes which allows for plenty of work time while also quickly securing coral or rock. CoralCrete™ is ideal for working with larger colonies of branching coral, most large polyp coral or adhering plating coral to rockwork. CoralCrete™ is safe for aquarium inhabitants when used as directed.
For sensitive skin it is best to wear latex gloves. Cut off desired amount of CoralCrete™. Replace unused CoralCrete™ into plastic storage tube. Remove film and knead the 2 part epoxy together until uniform color is achieved. Once mixed, CoralCrete™ can be used to adhere coral or rock submerged or outside of the aquarium. Press firmly around base or contact point of coral or rock to insure CoralCrete™ penetrates pores and surface grooves. Curing begins in about 5 minutes, hardening in about 15 minutes. CoralCrete™ cures fully in 24 hours. Protein Skimmers may over activate during cure time so it is best to dial down skimmate production so that your skimmer does not overflow. Ideally you will want to clean the skimmer throughly before using 2 part epoxies and observe skimmate production after using the product.
CoralCrete is available in 2 oz and 4 oz packaging and both are available in gray or purple.
