should I adhere its base to a rock or just sit it on a rock?
If I adhere it, what should I use?
Here's one way.

best to adhere them IME Jokaz
snails, hermits, urchins etc can and will bulldoze smaller frags on rocks and worse case scenario is it happens when you are out for a while and the frag falls into something that shows its displeasure by stinging it
the 2 part epoxy reef putties are my choice of method
these provide a reasonable fix, tolerant to the general activity of inverts, but if you want to relocate the frag later for some reason, it is pretty easy to do so
for a more heavy duty fix , the putty , superglue combination works well
basically make the ball of putty, and put a dent in it with your finger tip, fill this recess with superglue and then press the putty ball onto the base of the frag rock or plug
make a similar dent on the other side of the putty, fill with superglue, and then press the lot down onto your chosen spot on the rockwork
worth holding it down for a minute or so, to make sure it is secure before moving your hand away
I just fragged a few mushrooms using the netting from a body wash loofa thing! REad it somewhere! Bought a 99 cent body wash thingy at walmart and cut it up! there's probably enough for about 1000 frags, and then used rubberbands around the frag so i didnt squish the frag! Worked well for them and a xenia i got! Gonna try it with a ricordea if i can get up the nerves to cut him up! Hate to do it!lol
I like Steve's system
does super have to cure in the air or can it cure in the water?
