Hey i've got a question.. when i get corals, and coral frags, what should i use to glue them to rocks? Also.. how would i glue them to the rock? Can i just put the glue onthe frag and then stick it on the rock underwater? Or do i have to take the rock out and do it all outside of water.. then put it back?

Don't glue them in at first. You'll want to be able to move them around to determine where they do best with the lighting and flow. Once you find a good spot and want to permanently attach them, you can use marine epoxy or superglue gel. If you choose to use superglue, I'd take the rock out briefly to do it. I use epoxy simply because it's not as permanent so if we ever get froggy and want to do a rescape, I know I can remove them. It does hold them in place well enough to stand up to the snails though.

Yes. The marine epoxy comes in a tube, and you just tear a piece off and knead it in your hands until it mixes. Then you do the actual gluing underwater.

Update time! Here's a FTS. Try not to notice the cyano. We're working on that. LOL


New monti cap, green with purple edges, that HN1 won on frag poker night!


The yasha is surprisingly personable, for a little goby! He hangs out in the open mostly and rarely goes into the burrow.


Wiggles is growing, and starting to darken up! We can't wait to see how the black fills in on this little guy.


Our newest acan is looking happier.


So is our scoly!


We also picked up this beautiful fire shrimp with HN1's frag poker winnings!

O man, good job. Are you using this tank as a frag grow out tank? Also, those zoas above the fire shrimp (the green ones) are awsome. Also, what size tank is this again?

Looks great guys, I hope to get there after I take care of my little setback. At least the cyano is a pretty color even though it's a bad thing, (Never saw it before) I'm sure you guys have it under control.

Blehhhhhh, we hate cyano!!! LOL

At least this outbreak is not as bad as what we had in the 20. It's like as soon as we got our tank established so we didn't have these issues anymore, it was time to upgrade!

What is your setback Keith? I'm going to your thread now to check it out.
