I'm hoping to talk to the owner and see if he can't give me $5/frag or something like that. I've been a longtime customer from my freshwater tanks, and they know me by name. My fingers are crossed.

That would definitely be nice. Especially since its a nicer birdsnest in general.

IME if you come into an lfs with some nice frags, they'll usually make a deal with you.

Here's a shot of it.

One question: right now it is still on the frag plug and at the bottom of the tank. Can I just break it off and glue it somewhere else? Do they do better towards the top?

Yes and yes. But you need to use a super glue gel that's 100% cyanoacrylate.

Any particular brand you recommend? The Loctite gel is from 60-100% CA based on the MSDS:
http://henkelconsumerinfo.com/produc...0&MATNR=235495

It doesn't state what the other up to 40% could be, though...

Krazy Glue appears to have "fumed silica" in addition to the CA, so it's a no-go.

The BRS gel is $6/oz, whereas this Loctite is only about $0.70/oz at my local Lowes.

I use loctite super glue gel and have never had a problem. Never checked the MSDS on it though, heck most people don't even know what a MSDS sheet is. I guess it doesn't need to be 100% CA. When you glue it down make sure you push the glued frag into the rock and gently twist a little to get the glue into the rock, and you'll have to hold it there for about 5 seconds or so while it cures

Thanks for the recommendation.

I'm an engineer, so I triple check all that stuff
