    1. Can I use the small dry rock rubble pieces pictured bellow instead of frag plugs?[​IMG]

    2. Can I just use a razor to cut shrooms and zoas?

    3. What kind of glue do I use to glue down corals on the rubble?

    Thanks in advance.:D

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    You might want to just google what a fragging kit looks like it may give some ideas as to the specific tools and needs.

    Yes u can use rock rubble for frags. Do not glue shrooms. Instead use a shallow dish filled with rubble and place the shrooms within-they'll attach themselves to 1 or several pieces. Then once attached you can glue the rubble with shroom onto a larger rock piece.
    Zoas a little tricky. You can glue them but the utmost care needs to be taken so that NO glue comes into contact with the zoa polyp.

    i've used a body wash loofa thing from walmart! 99 cents and then cut it up into pieces! I put the frag on a rock or plug wrap a bit of the mesh around and rubberband it down loosely! wait a week or so to attach and done! I've only done this with shrooms and xenia, doubt it would work with zoas! maybe though!
