Do i mount them laying flat or try to stand them up like a branching tree? Do i have to scrape off any of the flesh before i use the glue?

I just used a nice blob of super glue gel and mount them straight up. I don't do anything to the frag or the peice of lr I use to mount it on, but I try to use a small piece of rock that has a little hole or cervice and put the glue in there.

Don't forget, you can upload to the gallery and link to them as well

As for mounting vert or horizontal...for me it depends on the frag. If I get a frag that doesn't have any beanches or only one or two...I will mount it horizontal, if lots of branches already....I mount it verical. The majority of the growth on an SPS will be to create a secure base, then it starts upward and outward growth. The more surface area an SPS has on the LR the faster it will encrust, therefore, usually horizontal is better, but some frags don't lend themselves (shapewise) for horizontal mounting, plus they are not as immediately interesting as a vertically mounted frag. Also horizontal mounting encourages branching
