    Hi all,

    I found a baby pincushion and a single zoa head floating around in the tank this morning and just want to find out how must I fasten them to a rock?

    They is very small, I only have a pic of the pincushion and still need to dive in and get the zoa.

    Put it back in the tank in the glass it is in now, in a low flow area so it doesn't get blown around, leave it for a few days and it will latch/grow onto a few of those small stones, then you can take it out and superglue or putty it onto a bigger rock or frag plug.

    That doesn't really look like a glass container,
    more like a metal container...

    But as viper said, just put it in a shallow glass container back in the tank in low flow area. :)

    Yes, but with an elastic band, you need to be careful. Too tight and you will cut the pincushion in two.

    Yeah, I think it's too small for a rubber band.

    Hi,
    Thanks guys it was in a 15ml measuring spoon, I put it into a small glass with the sand and then "planted" the glass in a low flow area. I was wondering if I can use reef glue to glue it to a small rock that I have?

    Thanks,
    I already have some reef glue but will remember about the super glue gel.
    It's always good to know what is reef safe and what is not.
