I don't like the look of rubberbands around my plugs/rocks.

And I doubt superglue will hold them to the rocks good enough that I won't knock them off when I'm vigorously cleaning the hair algae off my rocks.

I do what I wish!

And I'm a she.

hehe
I don't like the rubberbands neither, but the glue that I use hold them pretty good in my LR.
I don't have plugs, I bought small piece that cut out from a big rock.
and I will find a LR that have a hole or place that fit my coral rock and glue in on.

anyway ^^ your tank still looks lovely

I need some better glue.

And the plugs I have I bought from others (didn't know they were on plugs...well except one). I don't really like them either. My other frags are on square things, which would be hard to glue I think.

When I frag, I'll put them on small pieces of base rock. Thats the plan atleast.

I haven't fragged anything yet...but I think you can use a razor blade...and then some tweezers would be helpful. You already have the glue. You'll want to wear gloves and maybe even eye goggles.
