I just finished a new hardscape and want to echo what everyone has already said.
I have black lava rock acting as a wall between two substrates with manzanita secured to the top of the rock.
To secure the rock to the bottom of the tank I used Marineland Silicone from petsmart...it's $10.99 and I have lots left over. Those rocks aren't going anywhere.
To secure the wood to the porous lava rock, I drilled some pilot holes in the wood and used the Instant Ocean Aquarium Epoxy in Gray from Big Al's for 16.99. It comes in green and red too. I had better success kneading the putty for 2 minutes rather than one. It kind of stinks like a hair salon. I let both cure for 48 hours before adding water.
If you are making crazy bridges or anything, there is a product called E Marco 400 which is a cement.
Might be worth looking into whether it would be suitable for dragonstone?
Have also read lots of people who use the epoxy/superglue combo (only cyanoacrylate is aquarium safe) Gorilla glue makes a gel as well as the regular glue.
HTH and have fun!
