zoanthus frags

hey guys i made some zoanthus frags from my yellow zoanthus all i did was break off pieces of rock and use a putty from marineland callled hold fast its in a tube and you have to mix it till it turns white will zoanthus spread onto this? the frag peices are kinda wiggily like a lose tooth but i think it will stay as long as i dont bother it to much this is my first frag will the zoanthus spread onto the hold fast?

its not really a putty it gets hard after its set it gets hard on the box it says its made for bonding live rocks and corals it says after 0ne hour you can sand it down i could sand it down so the coral can continue to spread onto the rock atleast

If this is a marine putty, the zoas will cover it in time. Next time use superglue. It's faster and IMO better. The putty is good for holding your liverock formation together.

That putty will work. The problem you will have is that it is to slow and the coral will slim over and the putty won't stick. Just get Super glue gel from the hardware store. Super glue, crazy glue etc. Look for this on the label:Ethyl Cyanoacrylate Gel.

Using the super glue gel is the best way to glue frags of any kind to plugs or rock. It sets almost instantly with zoas. They will spread over just about any surface so not to worry there.
