Gently place the tiny frag atop its pedestal and lightly press it into the glue drop.

Then its into the tank water that has the coral dip in it,set for a minute,rinse in tank water then back into the tank for some healing flow.Try not to blast them with too much flow or light as you don't want them dislodging or getting any photosynthetic shock during recovery.

Didn't you recommend wearing surgical gloves and yet no picture shows surgical gloves being worn? Also, most commercially sold zoa's don't have the palytoxins you speak of.

Yes I suggested using gloves,especially if you have some cuts or abrasions on your hands.You are very observant that I do not have gloves on my hands and almost never do,that is the way I do things. From my understanding there is varying amount of paly toxin in all palys and most zoas and being as there is no listing document verifying the concentrations in these corals it would be wise to treat them all as being toxic,especially since there have been different degrees of reactions with different people. If you want to take the gamble then that is your choice.Just as it is mine to not wear the gloves. I will elaborate on how to get single polyps out soon,as well as the squatch method.
