I'm hoping if I can get it up and growing and my xenia and mushrooms and cabbage leather I'm gonna try to frag pieces to sell or trade. Though about getting a magnetic corner plug rack.
Read the cabbage leather you just cut a piece and glue it. Mushrooms you can slice like a pizza and glue them to a plug not sure about Xenia yet and I guess Kenya tree is easy too

Or instead of buying a rack I have some eggcrate left over and a set of suction cups off a heater

Mushrooms, leathers and kenya tree you can't glue just thought I would save you the hassle of finding this out on your own. You can take the frags and lay them on a piece of whatever you are using as a frag plug and lay a piece of pantyhose over it and tie the pantyhose on the bottom side. This forces the coral to attach, pop the frags back in your tank and give them a week and they should be attached and you can remove the pantyhose. This works with mushrooms, never tried with a leather but I would think it would work there too.

I don't agree 100% with u on this. I glued my Kenya Tree to a piece of rock rubble with NO problems. Still attached as we speak. Maybe it depends on what kind of piece you have to start with?

I read soft corals produce a slime and that is why glue USUALLY doesn't work and I glued the crap out of both of my pieces and the next day one came out and was under a rock and I moved the rock the other was glued to and it came off as well and the guy I got them from tried to glue them before I did with no success
