Did a water change last night bc i know i have been slacking and it was a hassel since all my primer is at moms except one of those 7 drop per gallon ones i keep for 1-3g changes or top offs and i changed 25g exactly... well i did it anyway and my cichlids seem happier.. i also change polyfil on one filter .. then today i did a small change on the 20g and removed some dying plant parts my snails were not really happy but i feed them and the shrimp to distract them from me removing there goodies...lol one leaf was covered in snails so bad it was weighed down to the sand :/ my cray needs to start munching or moms puffer will be a fat happy boy soon

You can either lay small pieces of rock next to it and let it grow into it and then just cut it off, or just cut off a small piece and use mesh to hold it onto rock/plug until it adheres. Both work fine

Cut it with a razor peel it off and glue it to a rock. Then sit back and enjoy.

All I do is tear the purple encrusting part and glue it on a rock.

awesome, i read it was that easy, but haven't tried it yet. I'm going to be building a structure, out of crushed coral and cement, to put the GSP on to keep it from spreading so bad.

i read that if you do this, you can just slice off whatever starts growing on the sand bed and keep it from spreading. the gsp i got was on a "broken rock frag" so it isn't glued to anything and i can just peel it off

It attaches itself. At least mine did.

Great idea. That's what mine is kind of like. IMO GSP is a pretty coral if you keep it on it's own island. One of my favorite softies actually!
