Question Monti Cap and Placement?

Yesterday I went and pick up a few Piece of Red Monti Caps. I am having issue's knowing where to place them. I was wondering if I can mount them on my Back glass? Is that possible with just Super Glue?

You can super glue them anywhere you want. Just remember when they start to grow they will shade everything below it. Best to keep them lower in the tank.

The problem is that they want lots of light which usually places them higher in the tank. Don't be stingy with the flow either.

I'd think that super glueig them to the glass wold be a regretable decision later on.

Usually higher up is not always the best from what I can understand especially with Monti cap they cover everything. I have enough sufficient light and flow to get them growing low... But I decided not to put them on he glass.....

I agree with Larry in keeping them lower in the tank. I have VHO`s and they grow pretty fast. They will as he said shade everything under so I would keep it lower.

The lower they are in the tank the less vibrant the color, especially with a red cap.
