    Yes Monti's are Arcos.

    If it's a small piece just ball up a small piece of Epoxy and work the ball into the rock. Then just stuff the frag into the ball.
    You are using Marine Aquarium epoxy right?

    If the coral is "happy", it will extend its polyps but w/o a picture, I can't tell you if what you're seeing it its polyps. I'm assuming you have a pink or green birdsnest? If so, the polyps should be the same color as the coral. What do the "polyps" look like?

    Ya thats the stuff. You kneed it together and go to town. It usually takes me some swearing and about 3 tries before it stays.

    They have cool purple stuff from 3 fishes now so it looks more like coraline.

    i know that a coral can turn brown from lack of light but can it turn brown from too much light.
