All right, my tank has finally dropped its nitrates to 0 ppm, so now I feel comfortable enough to add corals.
Soon I am going to purchase some, probably a couple of button polyps to start out, sort of like a test run to see how well they do. My question is, after reading various sites on coral attachment, which method is easiest and most effective? I'm thinking of just going the way of glue, but a couple of sites suggested rubber bands and insist that the corals' slimy excretions after being cut make it difficult to glue. Also, when the LFS frags it for me, I understand that corals need to 'heal' these cuts. Wouldn't applying glue to these cuts infect the wound? How can it heal if I apply a substance to it that will effectively 'seal' the wound?
Any advice/tips/info you can give would be great, I've never attached a coral yet.
