we just got the first 2 plugs done , what we did was smear gel crazy glue all over every nook and cranny of the plug , than he has a rock dust in a big baggie we dropped the plug in just like shake and bake , covered the whole plug in rock crumbs and dust , than he put it in this neat little tumbler that heats up as it spins , so far the 2 plugs took about 15 min , now that the 2 plugs that are finished I put them in the tank see if you can find them ,

I'll give you a hint :
look for them between the clown and the dark blue sea chromis and from the hammer to the bottom of the pict , they blend in well time consuming but well worth it . lets see how long it takes to find them , I almost lost them myself lol
don't mistake the baby toadstool by the hammer as 1 , (wow I just threw another hint)

Wow, Seaweed, you have been bitten and bitten bad, you definitely have the fever!

Those are just an instant collection, and a really nice collection! Congrats for sure! I saw a couple there which seem to be stunning, all are very nice. I am thinking I should just put up a monitor screen with all your guys great tanks and save myself lots of $$$, time, maintenance and trouble!!!

Sweet haul!

good eye Daryl you found the first one
heres the second one



I just found out my coral shipment wont go out till Thursday so it will be here Friday they said they'll add 2 extra corals because of the delay , guess it's for the best gives me time to finish getting my plugs covered , have to run over to the fish shop and pick up a few rubble rocks to smash up as I ran out of tiny chunks, got plenty of crumbs just no chunks need more glue too,
looked in tank almost couldn't see the two I placed to see if the covering works boy does it
hey that's neat my blue sea chromis eggs hatched now to catch the fry before they get eaten
put them in QT tank , what should I feed them any idea's since they are tiny , I count about 10 but there could be more hiding with in the rocks , my first saltwater fry hope they survive ,

Very nicely done Seaweed! I usually always try to remove off of plugs unless its completely covered. It can be risky though, you gotta be careful. Especially with those red hornets...

It's a good idea for sure. I can't stand the look of a frag plug in my tank.

So much agree about ugly plugs, didn't know you could do that Seaweed! It is so amazing that they blend in so well, great work! Also congrats on the fry, phytoplankton for food, pods? That is pretty darn exciting news too and will add additional beauty to the Zoas

Wow, it blends right in! I am looking to get some more zoas some nicer stuff. Does anyone know if there is a cheeper place than zoanthids.com that you can find such rare variety without the crazy per polyp prices? I really like the idea of buying everything from 1 or 2 sources instead of having to pay shipping from a bunch of different sellers. I'm looking to make a 10 gal nano reef of all rare zoas.


90 gal reef

caught about 8 there's about 6 more I didn't catch yet unless there's more in the rocks ,
put them in qt tank ,
ya was glad my friend showed me time consuming but worth it , the longest part is in the tumbler , I like how they're almost invisible to the eye , blend in with the rock look even better when the corals are on them
