Any interesting use of the walls of your tank to provide a anchor point for corals? Pics!!!

I have seen quite a few people do faux backs on their tanks with expandable foam and then create ledges, etc.

Here is an example:

Somewhere on here I saw someone using magnets to anchor frags to the back of their tank.
Looked pretty cool/creative.

Yeah, it was pretty cool.
Glue frag to magnet, and mag on back of tank.
I liked that you can move stuff if you need to.

and just to add, i am getting fantastic growth from the pieces on the wall; a combination of great flow and not being moved in months imo

NICE TANK! I really am getting into the use of the back and side glass as a means of placing corals. I am especially into trying this with a monti cap. I think watching it plate out would be awesome. The only Fear I have in placing corals on the glass is if they get too heavy and dislodge.

Nothing really exciting here just some zoanthid frags on my glass. A display tank at That Fish Place has the whoe back wall of a wavy 90g covered in GPS. Heres a pic of my zoas. They are slowly growing. The one is almost over the plug and close to the glass. I also have some GSP close to creeping up the back. I know one guy on here had his whole back wall covered in zoas. He started them on his overflow.

As other mentioned you can buy aquatic magnet frag plugs.
