I just got what I think is a frogspawn and a hammer coral (I will post pics when I get a chance). What's the best way to place them in the tank. They come as branches so how do people secure them within the rocks? Do people use putty? Or just wedge the branches in between rocks? Thanks for the advice.

I just wedge mine in between the the rocks. Just make sure they are secure or they will keep falling. Here is my branching hammer coral and you can see how it is wedged in.

Ok cool...I'll try that as well. I currently have the base wedged in a hole in a piece of LR. I can't tell you how long I was in the tank rearranging last night.

I split this thread from the other thread since it was off topic. Hope all goes well
