How to get zoa to stick to live rock?

I just bought my first two Zoa's they came in the mail on small pieces of rock. How the heck do I put them on my live rock?
Thanks

You can use superglue gel. Dry off an area of the rock, place some gel there, hold it out of water for about 15 seconds and place the rock in the water where you want it. Hold it there for about 15-20 seconds until it stays. Then you're done.

I aways wondered about this too. Those round frag disks don't look great. I always assumed that over time and growth the zoa would cover it completely and edge over to the rock so you wouldn't know it was there.

I also have been curing lots of little rock rumble in my new tank with the thought that when I start adding corals I could move them to the more real looking rubble.
