If I were you and you really can't get it to fit anywhere...glue the plug attached to the shroom to a piece of live rock, so it won't be as hard to move if it's unhappy where it is. Just snap off the plug rather than move the entire rock.

Ok good idea. He was moved again this morning so maybe my current flow is too high for something not secured.

I need to get the super glue gel right?

You can break the base of the plug off pretty easily so you will just have a disc. To attach it to LR, just take some super glue gel and apply it to the base of the disc. IME, shrooms will just detach if unhappy and float until they land somewhere they like.

I use epoxy sticks just because it cures a lot faster.

Ok cool, so epoxy, super glue gel I'll get whatever is available. I'm assuming both as aquarium save correct?

I'm a bit nervous taking the frag out of the water but I'll try to be quick

A lot of people tend to use super glue gel. I myself have no experience with it as I used the epoxy sticks. The only problem I found with them is that you really need a grooved/rough surface for the stuff to help bond to. Either or is fine, most LFS, including the chains should carry both.

Sorry for being wrong on that one!
No, problem..we all cover each others back..
On a side note, I run my waste water into my washing machine. It's good enough to use to wash my clothes.

From what I understand (which is little), it is better for the filters to be vertical if you can manage. I really don't know if it should go up or down but my gut would way you want the water to exit the top as any left over sediment would settle down when off.
