They seemed to be attaching perfectly, and when I got home from school today, they were gone... I'm crushed. :'(

I just read this thread and I am a bit surprised. I feel you were let down slightly because it will take a zoa/Paly a month or two to attach to anything. Take it from me, I have 15 years experience with zoanthids and can tell you with complete confidence that you need to take the first step attaching coral. I personal have been using gel super glue from the local dollar store and simply attach the zoa to a bead of glue.

And glue with a base of cyanoacrylate will be reef safe. I trust it completely. These are my sumer lovin palys from Zoanthid.com, I spent 170$ per polyp and they are being held with super glue.

Eventually the zoa will grow around the glue and attach...

Maybe I'll find them and try the glue. I'm not sure if my fish or the current blew them out. I hope they turn up. Just hoping they art in my filter. :/ thanks. I'll be sure to use the glue in the future and how long should I let it set, in or out of water? And the glue will be fine on the zoa's body? It won't burn or anything? My zoas had nothing attached to them. Try we're actually being enclosed by Xenia.

I'm sorry that happened. I hope they turn up. I still think that a glass or PVC protective enclosure is a great way to have your corals attach the natural way however glue is often a quick fix. I just found that you can only use glue for Stoney corals. Leathers and really any soft coral often grow a slime coat which defeats the purpose of the glue.

Best if luck with all of it. We all have sad stories. Unfortunately it seems to be part of the hobby.
