My small 4 head Zoa's and my Green Ricordia. I saw my peppermint shrimp messing with the Zoa's but he walked away after checking it out. Nothing else in the tank that I can think of that would Kees with them. All my fish are reef safe. Maybe it was a hermit or something?

I've had to chase my Ricorida around the tank before, not that fun. I finally found a spot where if it does get blown around I can still get to it w/o moving any rocks. I don't want to mess with mine too much since its in the process of splitting. Is the zoa on a plug?

super glue gel, or any gel-like glue that is cyanoacrylate based will work fine.

it wont work on a ricordia. I had one fly loose, and reattached it but it didn't stick.

Someone posted on my thread about reattaching a ricordia and had a good article on sewing it on.

AAMF I haven't seen it in a long time. i figure it attached to the back of a rock somewhere.

Get the ric, Get the rock you want it on. Place it in a bowl/bucket with glad wrap over it, Puncher a few holes in it. Put the ric where you want it to stay. Put the containter in a low flow zone.. Give it a week or two and the ric will be attached. I do it with all my frags.
