Ok, here is my review!

Got these from Slayer (Jamie) to try out and I am impressed!

"bag of them"

Nice clean design. Would look awesome on some black egg crate! I think algae will have a hard time sticking to this as opposed to rubble and regular plugs. It fits super easy into the eggcrate and can be positioned sever ways to best use your space.

"the plug"

It has all kinds of extra features like for softies (toothpick placement), breaking off some of the legs to fit in the rockwork better, etc. I just stuck with the basics for this..

"plug legs"

I chose to try different kinds of coral for this. SPS, chalice, and Baby Plate coral.

"sps"

Pretty easy concept. Put glue in the nice divot on the plug and put the coral on it.

"glue"

The Sps was the only slightly difficult one (although i think it would be just as "hard" on a regular plug) trying to keep it upright without damaging it til glue set a bit.

"tadah!"



Overall, i reccomend this product! It would seem to work exceptionally well on z/p, plate coral, etc. Thanks!

Mike

Since I find it hard to find places to put the ones with a single much larger leg, I would love the ability to break off the legs easily.

This is addressed in the design of the coral cradle. Read slayers write up on them in his thread and see what all these little guys will actually do.

I also got a set from Jamie and am very impressed with the product. He really used alot of thought when he came up with these. I'm sure these will catch on and become the standard in frag plugs. I love em, expect a write up from me as well.

^ I did read it and it immediately made sense to me. Being a first timer, I paid no attention to how many cracks and crevices were in my rock and didn't drill any of it. I had no idea I needed too. Now, I am kind of stuck. LOL Well, the next tank will be different. (you guys have never heard anyone say that before have you?)
