Free Floating Zoes

Hi Guys, I've got a funny little question. My green Zoes are very happy, and have expanded to the point that a big section has fallen off their rock and is free floating around the aquarium. My water movement is pretty high and it can't seem to grab on to a rock. Is there a way to get him attached to a rock? Epoxy perhaps?

what kind of epoxy? I would be careful on what you use in a tank. Crazy glue GEL works very well. I tried regular CG a while back and it did not work well.

You can also get a tupperware container, fill it with liverock rubble, sit it on the bottom of your tank, and let the zoos attach naturally. Either way.

SG gel is the best IMO for zoos. The epoxy will work but if it is that thick stuff like playdoh, it might be tough to get the down in it.

Yeah i agree with ellisz. You might damage the zoos if you have the thick playdoh like epoxy.
