I am looking into adding some montipora frags to the back glass of my aquarium. I have a 50 gallon breeder and currently just let algae grow on the back wall for my fish to nip at. I was wondering if anybody has some pictures of how they have put montipora or any other kinds of SPS on the glass and how they went about doing this?

Any information or opinions on doing this is appreciated, thanks

Just glue the frags to the glass where you want them to grow and keep you water parameters in check and it will grow in no time. I had some grow on the glass on the bottom of my tank ( my tank was BB) I don't have any pictures but it can and will grow on anything you put it on just about

I always have a hard time gluing stuff lol so I got these magnetic frag plugs. I really like them and recommend it!

Thanks for the input. I don't really want to glue the coral straight to the glass as I've read issues with it falling off.. Where did you buy your magnetic frag plugs at?

Check your glass thickness!

Hope these are big enough i am in Tapatalk. This is GSP so you know not as demonstrative as if it were a stony coral but you can see the magnet plug. Ignore the uglies of the tank haha still a work in progress....

I hadn't seen those before. I was always hesitant about gluing corals to the back wall due to the weight once they started growing. Going to have to try these!
