polyps growing on the glass!

at the BEST LFS we have here (it really is AWESOME... better than the one close to me...) they have a 150 (or maybe its 180..I dont remember) gall reef, and their polyps were growing on the glass wall ( on the back) of the tank...and it looked really neat...so I diddnt know that they could grow on a verticle, glass surface

I have star polyps growing up the back glass and at one point had a zoo polyp attach to the glass as well. I don't think they are to particular.

I have some orange zoos doing this and some xenia as well. Just wish the zoos would grow faster at this point.

Some people actually frag their Xenia and glue it to the back and sides of their tank for asthetics. My yellow polyps are doing the same thing. But then again, my yellows are growing at a plague proportion.
