Foxface + Reef glue = ???

Hey there,
I was gluing some coral into my 90 when the freshly applied glue on the bottom of a frag happened to touch my foxface's spines... What exactly should I do? (yes I'm aware the photo is blurry, but it gets the point across)

I saw someplace on the Internet of a tang which went after some I guess partially cured super glue and had its mouth glued shut. Apparently this happens more often then I ever would have thought but people said hopefully and eventually the glue will work itself free because of the slime coat on the fish.

In your case I wouldn't worry to much because the glue isn't in the fish's mouth or anything. Based on what other people did I'd just wait for it to fall off.
