Very nice Chuck. How do you attach the plugs to the rock? Super glue, epoxy putty?

If possible I try to get the coral off of the plug and superglue the frag straight onto the rock. If the plug is too encrusted, then I clip off the long end of the plug and keep the coral on the plug disk, then glue the disk onto the rock. I use superglue gel. After a couple of uses it is hard to get that darn cap off of the glue ;)

What tool do you use?
They are not easy to to clip off but I use a diagonal cutter hand tool. If that won't work I will start it off with a hack saw :) Some local stores will remove it for you if they have a table top band saw.

Do you remove the rock to glue the plug?
No, I put a good amount of the glue on the frag/plug and set it underwater on the rock. Twisting it slightly back and forth until you feel it just catching to take hold, then it will set up firm underwater.

Thanks Chuck. I used to buy whole colonies for what frags are selling for 😆

I have always used a ‘bone cutter’… works great on plugs and corals.
