I have a green devil's hand coral that had been doing well for the past 5 months or so. I had to replace my lighting a few weeks back and upgraded to a more intense lighting system. The devil's hand was near the top of my tank and has since detached from its substrate. Every time I reattach it, it finds a way to escape. I have glued it in place with crazy glue, I have used the toothpick and rubber band method for soft corals....nothing will hold it.

I am thinking that the new lighting is too intense and that the coral is trying to find a new home. Any thoughts? If not, any suggestions on how to reattach this fella?

Apparently your crazy glue isn't crazy enough. ;)

Most softies like this don't stick to crazy glue very well.

You're probably right about the light shock.

Gently rubber band it to a fairly hefty rock and put it on the bottom of the tank. See if that helps. Don't band it too tightly or it will definitely cut it in two over a couple days.

Yeah leathers can be a PITA. I usually have to use superglue and rubberband it between two rocks to get them to stay.
