    Good afternoon,
    I want my Zoa's to grow on my back plane glass of the tank.
    I think it will look very nice - but I'm not sure how to get the first piece of it to start to grow on it?

    Can you maybe give me some ideas on how to get my zoas to grow on the glass?

    Easiest way is to just lean a rock of zoa's against the glass, try to do it in such a way that one or two zoa's are almost squashed against the glass, it will take a while but they will eventually grow onto the glass. The other method is to super-glue them onto the glass, but doing that under water won't work, drain your tank. :p

    Would look nice but if there is something wrong with your tank (Leak, crack)and you need to repair what are you going to do in that period they need water. Maybe slip a plastic panel in at the back and let them grow on the plastic if you need to drain your tank slide the panel out and submerse in a flat container.
