Usually people will lean the plug it's on to the glass. I know for a fact that you can glue a plug on the glass. I did it with a frag of zoas. It does look pretty cool.

Yeah, I like the look of them on the glass. I am going to do that with my 40b once I get it set up

I know the tank your talking about and I'm not 100% positive but I believe the back of that tank is covered in green encrusting gorgonian with the flesh around the polyps being more of a beige rather than the dark purple that you see with your typical GSP

Here's mine, I like the way it looks also. So I got a tiny piece and glued it to the rock and leaned it to touch the glass. Was nervous it was just going to take over the rock,but as you can see it's going the other way as planed. Lol thank god

At maximum growth a 1" square of GSP can be 6"x6" within 6 months or less.

Mine took I wanna say like 6 mo. It stopped touching the glass a little. And it was growing on the rock pretty fast. Once it realized the glass was there it grew fast.So all the polyps on the glass took like 2 1/2 - 3 Mo.
