Don't be afraid to take coral out of the water for short periods of time. There numerous corals exposed to direct sun light and air for hours everyday.

Thanks dude, that's the SR20 swap in my 95' 240sx, I bet there are alot of nice cars around there. I'm a big Nissan geek, what model is your R33, GTR, GTS-T? Also....have you been to the Okinawa aquarium, its supposed to be amazing...

Great question!

Believe it or not I just posted about this in the think tank. Gluing seems easy in theory but really hard in practice.

It can be a little difficult, just something you will have do a few times to get it down.

This is exactly what I use, it does pretty good...

I usually apply the adhesive to the coral and then place it where I want on a rock in the tank.

haha, I don't want too get this thread too off topic, but I did put a Silvia front end on my friends 94' 240SX. that turned out to be a great Drifter, we ended up swapping about 5 engines before we got one that worked great, and then added a turbo. the guy ended up getting away from the drift racing (wife made him stop, haha) so we ended up doing a full show car out of it, turned out great if you ask me, took out the back seat, striped it bare metal, and painted. total custom fiberglass job, and about 6000w sound system.

back then we had our own auto shop, and imported car parts that his brother in Indonesia made at his factory, we ended up fabricating 240 parts, mostly intakes, exhaust parts, manifolds, and harness mounts, and roll cages. he also sold sound systems, for an Asian based manufacturer. I forget the name but it was something Acoustic, like ASB or something, I'll have to look it up when I get home...
