Got myself some small frags today...

Well I went to the store to get another turbo snail to help keep the tank clean. Then I saw a tank 2 frags for 10 bucks. I got myself a leather and a polyp. THey both look really cool. Do you just set them where ever and they grow out or have do you keep them down on the rock?

Congrats on the new frags. Nice price too. I'd place them toward the bottom of the tank. You'll also want to secure them somehow. Superglue gel works, or you could just use some cotton thread and tie them down. Looking forward to some pics.

Just seen your new post, to get them to move off the rock they are on, try placing the rock up against the rock you want them to move to. There are other options but I'll save them til I find out what you have.

Updated pics of the new stuff....

Does anyone know what this is? The bottom is spiky like you can see in the pics, and the top is very soft. It never opened up all night.


Starting to come out. All of them came out by the end of the night.


Shroom coming out


Chillin in the breeze


My Shroom and unkown side by side

To attach them you can also use a product called "Aquamend" ... Home Depot sells it in the paint dept., it's kind of like a paste that you roll between your finger and then stick it to the bottom of the rock your frag is attached to and then place it where you want! It hardens completely in about an hour!

Cool Frags by the way!!!
