I bought a polyp frag the other day (zoa? I think). It is not attached to anything and wherever I place it in the tank, it does not stay. I find it wherever the current happens to blow it, usually in some out of the way dark corner. What to do??:confused:

i have them floating all over my tank right now
if you get them to stick with glue let me know the brand, ive glued them before only to have them become unglued within 24 hours

i heard using a light netting wrapped around the rock and zoa is a better option but ive never tried it yet

Use tweezers to hold the polyp and dab the bottom of the polyp with a clean towel to dry it off before you stick it into the gel (important step). Hold it for a little while and you should be set.

superglue, krazyglue, zapp... anything that is cyanoacrylate based.

... but like Hoang said, make sure that you dry off the part you glue first.

The gas mask should provide ample protection, but yeah wash your hands afterwards since many zoas have palytoxins (sp?) which are some of the most toxic poisons known to man (or so I have heard).
