Xenia doesnt wanna stay put...

Post by danielmiller82 » Sun Aug 01, 2004 8:05 pm

I have a rebel piece of xenia that WILL NOT stay put., I tried a ziptie through it and I tired a little superglue gel with no luck...it keeps getting free somehow. Any thoughts on how to keep it in place?

set a rock on top of it or use a toothpick.

well i think I did a good job of attaching it to the rock..I glued a toothpick in a hole in the LR stuck the xenia on the toothpick..and then glued the xenia to the LR and put glue around where the toothpick comes out of the xenia...I hope that I didnt hurt the xenia too much...it doesnt look too happy right now though. but most of it is still moving.

personally I would use a trash can... I love the way it looks...but anything that takes over my tank....even the green slimer .....it is gone if it is not to late.

This is the Purple stuff that I got as a clipping, He keeps trying to get away. Hopefully this time he will stay in place.

island, huh? Don't worry, it'll pop up all over the place in a matter of a month or two in a healthy tank :) :) :) I have to pull the crap out monthly.

Moving around might be a good thing....easier to throw out that way.

I only have one tank so far Xenia will live in, the other tanks melt it.

This post is 4 years old why are you dredging it up ? He got out of the hobby at least 3 years ago.
