Very true.. Im doing the same thing with my tank and corals.

Superglue gel is strong enough to hold when snails are pushing against it but you could still move it until it encrusts i usually lay them in there for a day or two moving to dif locations before glueing down but like i said even after glue their still movable i just didn have luck with epoxy

I like to place coral where they contrast against other coral

That's exactly why nothing is permanently placed yet. Everytime I get something new in...... "that will look better next to that. No, wait, this looks better......" I swear, I think I'm worse than a woman when it comes to my tank (no offense, ladies).

While I do agree that layout is important, I am more concerned with how different corals interact with each other. Using a bit of know how, you can effectively use some corals to control spread of others.

Trust me, that is one thing I monitor carefully.... whenever anything is moved, I not only watch for this, but also it's reaction to any change in light level and/or flow as well. I've got many that I've tried in various spots, and while I don't have your experience, I've learned to tell pretty quickly when they're not happy....

Yes...there are some general rules when doing a mixed reef that you don't have to worry as much about in a all SPS reef. I can't keep myself to one type of coral.

What kind of clue do you guys use? I saw a super glue at Meijers that had the cyanoacrylate stuff but it said warnings signs of getting to eyes and stuff. Wasn't sure if it would be safe underwater.
