    Got some cool zoo's growing on a huge bulbous frag plug. Looks terrible in my nano. Is there any way to safely remove them so I can glue 'em to my liverock??

    Or do I just get a sharp knife and scrape 'em off?

    How will you re-attach them?

    Wouldn't the coral be abit soft for attachment and you are gluing coral flesh, is this not going to effect the unit ?

    Warr: I've read on reefcentral as well as nano-reef.com that this is a safe way of attaching corals. Because its gel it creates a skin when it comes into contact with the water
