new corals, mushrooms detatched

I just got home with some corals that I had to go pickup from Fedex because they didn't deliver it..

Besides that, some of the mushrooms that were attatched to the piece of rock have fallen off... so what do I do? I don't have any superglue at my house or anything. I have some rubberbands, but the mushrooms that fell off are pretty small. TIA

Do you have any netting or lace? You could use that to hold them down for a few days til they reattach.

I don't have any lace that I know of. I have a fishnet that I've never really used. Could I use that somehow? Cut it up?

Yeah, that would work if you don't mind cutting it up. Place some rubble rock into a plasic lid or shallow container, place the loose mushrooms into it and cover with the netting. Something like what's on here. This is for propogating but the process is the same. Or, if you are trying to attatch them to the rock directly, though it will be more difficult you could place the netting over them and loosely rubberband them. The netting is just there to keep them from blowing away so it doesn't have to be tight against them. HTH

I am sorta lazy about sticking things to rock so I usually just pin the coral to a rock with a toothpick.

I usually take a fish line and lightly tie the mushroom on the rock. It should stick soon.
