    xenia frag.

    i picked up a small xenia frag on sat at the kmac meeting (thanx vicki) and am wondering the best way to fix it to rock, i have had it in a small container with a few small rocks in it, placed in the corner of my tank, hoping it would attach itself, but this does not seem to be working. Any advice would be very much appreciated, thanx.

    Needle and thread.

    Spear the xenia frag near the base, and wrap the thread around a small rock. This will secure it enough so that it eventually attaches over the course of a week or 2.

    Only one or 2 wraps around the rock are needed. It's just to hold the frag against the surface of the rock. No need to remove the thread afterwards.

    I use regular sewing thread.
