Normally, you'd think lighting would be an issue, but both of these are just stuck in the sand bed, and the snails tend to tip them over... I try to avoid touching either of them, so they get flipped back with a chop stick, usually.
Do I get a bigger plug? I am not certain I want to glue them to a rock at this time. Any thoughts?
well if you dont wanna glue them down to rock yet your best bet is to find a bigger frag disc/plug or trying to get some rock rubbble thats bigger than the plug and just glue it to that. Its what i do for my zoa
's on my sand bed, has worked great, cause you can kinda push the rock into the sand a bit and they dont get knocked over.
