    Ricordia attachment

    I picked up some ricordia from refferboy back in late January. It's doing fine and is a very nice color. However, after a few days in my tank, some of the sections came lose from the rock they were on. I've been trying since then to get them to re-attach. I've got two pieces attached to some new LR but two pieces just won't attach. I've tried toothpicks, the PVC pipe method and a couple of other ideas but they just don't want to attach.

    Any suggesitons of what to do??

    superglue them.
    thats should/will fix it... i tried it on some shrooms..
    i was scared at first that i would poison it.. not even.. was perfectly ok.. I left it in a jar for one hour and rinsed it with the same water as the tank.. then put it back in.. better safe then sorry.. they were opened only a few hours after.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    What I always do for Ricordias is place them in a little pudding cup with a bunch of small rock rubble pieces in the tank on the sand. This way the current doesn't move them around as much and they end up attaching themselves to a piece of rock. Once this happens, I remove them from in the cup and attach that piece of rock wherever I want it.
