Loctite is a name brand but synonymous with thread-lock for screws (don’t use thread-lock for corals). Like colossal tater stated, CA glue is what you want (I think all super glues are CA glue). You do want something that is relatively thick as the thin stuff often just gets absorbed into the rock or whatever you are trying to attach to.

I get the cheap super glue gel from Doller Tree. It's 2 packs of glue for $1. Just make sure to get the gel, as the thin stuff is basically worthless for glueing to rocks. Cyanoacrylate glue is what you want, but that's basically any super glue.
I saw on a thread somewhere that loctite gel super glue put not sure because when I glue my frag they just seem to fall off

Any cyanoacrylic gel superglue is reef safe.

If you want to glue frags, however, superglue alone isn't super reliable. Consider a superglue/putty sandwich. I use JB Waterweld. Make a ball, dab of superglue on one side, attach frag, dab on the other side, attach plug.

I have used coral glue and basic super glue gel. Both work
