Would you guys recommend gluing the purple cap down? Or just let it sit against the rocks?

That purple monti is huge!!

Don't worry about the zoas. The last time I got a frag it took them a few days to all open. It's good that one opened already!

I know, I love it!! And yeah I figure I'll have to give everything a few days to fully open anyways, I heard the green star polyps usually take awhile to fully open so we'll see

Trumpets usually never need to be put onto plugs. Still, if they are looking that bad and the crab is on it they may be damaged or dying and the crab will clean up the dead tissue. They will feed on decay. If just one head survives it should eventually grow back into a nice coral.

No, reason they arent put on plugs that much is since they build a nice base as it is to jam into rock work or your sandbed.
