    Got a nice, healthy frag of branching montipora from the LFS today for $5. I'm wondering how to mount the thing to a rock, should I just use some super-glue gel?

    Also got a nice devil's hand leather and am trying to figure out if I should put it high in the tank with tons of light and water flow, or in the sand with moderate light and water flow.

    Any help would be appreciated! ;D

    Yup, just use super glue. I did mine that way, works great.

    Moderate light and water flow would be my recommendation. Congrats on the new additions! :)

    [smiley=laugh4.gif] Well if you don't move the hand before mounting, you might.......

    There I go misbehaving again but this time I was baited....or is that bated? I don't know anymore.

    I think it was 'bated' and there was a lot of it :)
