Zoa Frag??


Ive got several frags of Zoas that are on frag disk and plugs, what's the best way to get them and attach them to a rock to spread better??

But do I just pry them of the plug or scrap them off, what do you suggest? Can I glue them to my LR?

I putty the plug right to the rock. In time you wont see the plug as the frag and coraline grow.

I usually scrape mine off and glue them to the rock.

depends on the frag plug it is on? For zoo's I normally take em off the plug and put em where I want, again depending on where it is going it may or may not need glue or be removed from plug....

also I then can sell off or trade the orignal plug, if i left any zoos on it

Ok cool, so I can just glue them to the rocks, do you more success with them towards the middle/high/low of the tanks, high flow/little Flow.....? I'm thinking I woman combine a bunch or Zoa frags and see how they grown in a cluster? Anyone ever done this, I have about 10 diff Zoas in my tank right now so I'm interested in seeing the outcome

i have put a few types on one rock before and in time one over grows the rest and was a waste for me....

location depends on the type of zoo... for me i found bright colors like more light then darker / blue ones, which grow out and look better in less light.
