Best coral glue/putty?

Fully aware that many products have multiple pros and cons.
What works for you, for under the water? What is your process? (Putty, then glue plug or coral to putty)?

Which brands are recommended? I need to order soon but not seeing many positive reviews out there except maybe the Maxspec glue gun.
Just in case, I have purple rock and would like to keep it visibly appealing.

I just use superglue gel, I buy it a the 99 cent store. 2 pack for 99 cents haha
I cut the tip off the plug and put glue I then slowly dunk it in the tank and attach it. Hold for a bit till it cures up enough to let go. Coraline or coral will encrust and you wont notice it. I have been using this method for 15 years and have never noticed any issues.

I've always liked BSi IC-GEL

I've always found it cheaper at like model hobby shops and it's identical.

If I'm placing it in a rock then I use IC GEL on whatever putty I have. I find all the Putty's about the same.
