Default Coral glue

So Ive glued some corals onto my rock work, figured it would be netter than them constantly getting knocked over.

Unfortunately I need to relocate two of the corals. Has anyone had any experience/luck moving corals they've glued down?

Thanks
Rick

For sure.
How easy it is to remove depends,
If only glued down it should just pop off by hand, unless its a stoney that has encrusted onto the rock.
If epoxied down, you'll usually need to pry under it and use more force.
Again if its a stoney thats encrusted, you'll have to break the base to remove it.

Hey Rick,
As Shao wrote, it's easy enough to pry under the glue.
I use a jewellers-sized flat screwdriver, even if encrusted. The frag will pop right off.
