A tip for me please

Is there a way to attach a coral, mushroom, etc... to a live rock in your tank without having to remove the LR, or do you have to pull it out to glue it?

I just learned more tody about using the bridal veil material to cover the frag to keep it close to a rock, where it will attach itself. That seems good for mushrooms. You can glue them if they are larger, but the shrooms sometimes want to move and might not stay attached with glue. Depends on the type of coral. I have some colts and I put a toothpick through the bottom of one, and then used rubber bands to secure the two sides of the toothpick to a rock. When the thing finally attached, I removed the toothpick. That worked good for a slimy thing like a Colt. Soem frags work if you just attach them with a rubber band, but gently or else they will split from it.
