    Any cool new underwater epoxy or other way of stabilizing live rock structures that has worked for anyone? My rock is avalanche zone and I should fix it before adding fish and more corals in the fall. This is mature rock and tank, not new.

    I used a shelf system to place my rock on, if was for placing live rock on, but I don't think its available anymore - bought years ago. Cant find anything online anymore.

    Emarco or nyos both work well

    I will search around here and elsewhere. Too bad I could not attend past aquascaping event.

    I think Nyos is supposed to work under water but I haven’t done it.
    They both dry fast enough where I have taken rocks out and cemented them and put rocks back in without issue.

    Plenty of underwater "reef safe" epoxy products out there, you just have to realize that it needs to be used as if its part of the rock and not like glue. Meaning dont just get a little bit and smoosh it between two rocks thinking they'll magically stick, you want to use a lot and really squish it into any nooks and cranies where the rocks touch.
