Everyone has their own method. But I've had no issues temp floating most inverts. Clams, stars, and nems I drip. It's all about personal preference. Davepm's way will work just as well.

1) Do you think any of these fish will pick on it: Oc. Clown, Royal Gramma, Bangaii Cardinal, Blue/Green Chromis
2) Do you just leave them on the sand or glue them down to the sand or a rock?

Mine is between two rocks. Sand is fine too. Shouldn't have to glue them. And as far as fish, u should be good.

Did you balance it there or cram it in. Also would you have to glue it to a single rock or not?
P.s Your tank is really nice, I hope one day my tank ends up like that!

I just wedged it in between the rocks. You can just bury it in the sand. And thank you. Your tank will with patients. I made a lot of mistakes before I finally figured it all out.

Be careful with that my friend. If you buy online, there are a number of vendors who will not guarantee any coral if you drip acclimate. Personally, the only thing I drip acclimate is fish and some invertes. Everything else gets temperature acclimation, then into the tank, except corals which get 30 seconds of air time between temp acclimation and tank in order to allow them to slime up.

I've also used the aquarium epoxy in order to fix them into a specific spot.

I don't normally order on line. But all that I have, I totally agree on dripping. I go as far as taking pics of each step. From opening the package, to putting in tank.

I didn't know that! Thanks! I was always led to believe everything should be drip acclimated, inverts and fish made sense, never really thought about doing anything different with the corals!
