Week 38: Mounting corals: epoxy, super glue, and lighting tweaks | 52 Weeks of Reefing #BRS160

April 8th, 2016
Today on Week 38 of BRStv's 52 Weeks of Reefing, we are showing you our favorite ways to mount corals and frags in your tank!

Generally there are three main methods that we use when mounting frags: Gel Bubble, Air Water Gel Hybrid, and Epoxy Hybrid

Gel Bubble: Super glue has a tendency to form a skin underwater. We use this to our advantage by squeezing a metal super glue tube out underwater, forming a glue bubble. This bubble can be gently grabbed under water, and pressed onto your rock work. Then, it's only a matter of placing your coral into the bubble and allowing it to cure.

Air Water Gel Hybrid: One of the most popular methods of coral mounting, this involves simply applying a blob of super glue onto the mounting surface of your coral, and then pressing it onto your rock work. Giving the coral a quick twist onto the rock surface will break the super glue skin, exposing uncured glue and forming a bond to the rock.

Epoxy Hybrid: This method requires the use of both epoxy and super glue. Essentially you apply a dab of super glue on each side of a ball of epoxy, sandwiching the epoxy between glue, coral, and rock.
