Question about growing.

Do zoas grow well on acryilic sheets?
My thinking is to grow colony's on acrylic to help with fragging as they would just easily lift off the sheet or am I totally wrong?

When I need to move them they easily frag. If your careful and have the knack you can lift the plug and Mat without damaging the zoas. Then you just have a flat sheet of zoas to cut into frags.
I had a small colony of granny apples attach to the rack, I lifted them and a few days later they had reattached to the rack.
I've got goblins fire on a acrylic rack in my DT, they're all over It, like weeds, and now they're growing on the glass also.
I think when zoas are happy they'll spread and grow pretty much anywhere, as long as nothing is putting them off from spreading into the space.

Mine attaches to acrylic frag racks all the time and as Nick said above easy to frag when you lift off carefully. Might give some acrylic a try but can you get them on some websites like 1inch to 2inch square blocks15-20mmis thick.. so it easily sinks where you want them to be in tank.
I have few success with putty left over from scaping, flatten them and it was fairly easy fragging as you can cut through or scrape the putty it self with blade without actually damaging the zoa.
