I had never joint but you can use M-Seal for this purpose. Wait the response of masters.............

Big rocks means you have to drill and put aluminium rods
For small rocks you can use mseal...

mseal or putty that is used in marine aquarium to stick corals with rocks....

if its the aquarium that has live stock i would prefer using marine thing as they doesnt react with water and make water dirty

if its new aquarium use mseal or white cement and cure it till the PH spikes are stabilized
Finally i am Broke but Happy :D

yes super glue will work, but for heavier rocks not possible.

If people take anything from my music, it should be motivation to know that anything is possible as long as you keep working at it and don't back down.

Drilling granite rocks is no way easy, even mseal, except silicon. So what rock are we talking?
