Ideas for dealing with plug placement.
Posted 04 September 2011 - 04:49 PM
I have had a few people ask me what the best way would be to make plugs less conspicious in the tank (assuming they are not in a frag rack)
Here are a few ideas.
1.The easiest way is to cut the plug down. First cut the plug in half, then as close to the top rim as you want for the second cut. Be carefull not to remove the tips of your fingers with the final cut. I am using our bone cutters, but a slim side cutter or tin snips should do as good a job.
Once the plug is cut down, use glue or milliput to attach it to the rock.
2.Drill the live rock. First start off with a 6 or 8mm drill bit to pilot the hole. Then use about a 12mm bit, then finish with around a 16 to 18mm bit to get the plug nice and flush. This method is a little more difficult and of course requires tools, but gives a good aesthetic finish.
3. Use a Plug Pebble.
4. Remove the zoa from the plug and re attach it to your live rock.
Here are the pics. Feel free to ask any questions
ZS MEMBERS: Please remember to NOT double up frags in a single postage tube. For the highest possible success rate use 1 frag per tube.
Please allow zoa's to heal for at least 2 weeks after fragging before sending them out.
