just the very bottom of the stem so the water and light can help it upright itself
it will take about 2/3 weeks to fully attach to a rock

Ok cool thank you alot I knew nothing about attaching coral. I traded 2 xenia heads I paid $5 for for the two branches. Thought I could just glue it lol learned different.

Then in a few weeks I can snip the thread and pull it out?

no need it will grow over it and anything wrapped around rock will slowly decay away on its own
no colored threads they contain dye and will stain the coral

once you get used to working with different types of corals attaching will come natural to you I spent about 3hrs with a friend who knows all the ins and outs now it's a breeze
