    Hi, I have a small frag of zoanthids and it’s been in its place for month or so now and is doing well but! My hermit crab keep knocking it off now and the and I have to keep putting it back. I’ve read many things about gluing it to the rock and was wondering what’s the best way to keep it there. Many thanks

    thats the one i use
    and leave in the fridge as well
    makes it even thicker

    can get messy if use under water
    better to attach frag to a plug and then the plug to the rock

    Oh that’s great I’m glad I got the right one. My frag is already attataced to a small rock so am I correct in saying it I rub a bit of the rock in my tank and a bit on the bottom of the frag then stick together under water this will be ok?. I’m sorry to keep asking I’m just worried about killing my whole tank of with glue haha.
