    attaching zoo's

    i got got some pieces of zoo's at the frag swap and i'm wondering the best way to attach them to a rock. they are small pieces and i'm worried that the current or another animal may move them before they get a chance to attach.

    I would rubberband them to a rock, like you would green star polyp, for a week or so, they'll attach to the rock.

    I second the rubber band and the super glue gel. Both work great. Another way is a tooth pick.

    Just dry off both surfaces that you are trying to stick together. It is funny when it hits the water it hardens almost instantly.
